Happy Then, Happy Now

July 08, 2022

One of the best ways to make ourselves happy in the present is to recall happy times from the past. Photos are a great memory-prompt, and because we tend to take photos of happy occasions, they weight our memories to the good.

I’m sifting through happy memories for a soon-to-come Field Trip Friday post. Have a great weekend!

  1. Great thought Kathy. Had never given how true a good photo can be to remind us of happy times. I have a special one of my family taken several years ago before my parents were gone. Must get it out and take a special look. Hugs!

    1. Yes, definitely take another look! I'm always a little surprised at the number of feelings that come up when I go back through my pictures.
