Make New Memories

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” Albert Einstein

Today marks the first day of the Minnesota State Fair – 10 days of fun. I live a mile away and have not missed going at least once if not a few times each year. Many good memories with family and friends. With the pandemic, many things have changed, turned upside down and have been canceled.

While I’ll miss the fair and other fun activities this year, I am trying to create new memories and be open to different experiences. And while the change and loss in 2020 is extraordinary, we are not called to remain in they abyss. We are people of hope, resilience, creativity, innovation, imagination, joy, laughter, promise, light, depth and purpose.

Create new memories with trust and assurance that we don’t remain in one place and time forever. So as we live through this rare time in history, many things have not been canceled and new things have been given – quiet, family, joy, gratitude, time to create, plan, think, exercise, read and connect with others in new ways.

We need a collective mind shift to optimism, hope and abundance. If we create that state in this moment, we can confidently move through the pandemic and all of the other struggles on this journey. Keep the faith. The only way to live life is forward. Create new memories and cast light.

“Fun is good.” – Dr. Seuss

“Don’t ever become a pessimist… a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events.” – Robert A. Heinlein
