How Memories Can Give You a New Perspective On Life

We are planners. You’ve most likely heard your parents say, “think about your future,” at some point in your life. It’s easy to get caught in the grind, constantly collecting goals and to-dos in endless lists. From the grocery list on the fridge to your work calendar at the office, we find ourselves effortlessly traversing and organizing the future.

So, what about the past?
