~ Don’t You Remember ~
Don’t You Remember… I hate these words. I hate these words with a passion. I don’t remember!
Maybe I’m at the age where my memory is failing me. Or is it?
Through conversations with friends and family, reliving crazy adventures and antics, I often hear, Don’t you remember?
The short answer is no.
No I don’t remember it. Not because I don’t want too or because it wasn’t an important part of my life at the time, but because it’s not important now.
While I enjoy reminiscing and even hearing other’s tales and perceptions of what we all did, I just don’t cherish those memories the same.
It’s not that I don’t remember them ever, I just don’t remember them at the moment or by a simple word or clue…
Given more details and reminders these memories come flooding back like it was yesterday, but these memories are not the ones I cherish and hold close to my heart like the ones I have created since.
While I remember getting stuck in 4 feet of mud while out at 3 am while I was in my early 20’s, no I don’t remember what all we did that night or even why we were out driving through the swamps and quite frankly I barely remember who all was there.
But I do remember the first thought I had when I held my first born. While that thought lasted literal seconds, I remember it as if it was yesterday and I’ll never forget it.
So while I don’t always remember what others remember about me, I’ll never forget some other things.
I don’t believe this to be a bad thing. I believe this is my soul keeping the important aspects of my life in check and the others archived in my brain.
So while I don’t remember, it doesn’t mean I won’t or can’t remember! I just have better memories to cherish and keep at the forefront..
That’s life.. And it’s okay!

My “don’t you remembers” tend to be of fond times. Like you, I live in the present.
This is my downfall – I remember EVERYTHING. Every rotten thing that I’d cut off both legs to be able to forget. Without going into lurid details, I think I’d willingly submit to a lobotomy if it would erase the memories that keep me up all night.
We are very much alike in that way and it happens to me all the time. When someone say that to me I rarely ever really remember what they are talking about.
