Yesterday – the Constant Reminder

Yesterday often implies a mind caught up in the past on the fear side of things according to my experiences. But just like Tomorrow which, mind you, doesn’t limit to a calendar day, it can also suggest a positive note played loud.

Fortunately, in the wake of everything, I’m not so drowned-out or as inundated by Yesterday’s heavier events since successfully negating the positives. Or I’m not so caught up in clinging to previous pleasantries which is where the seeds were sown. In other words, I have now lessened the bite for when the cycle makes its way back from a positive to a negative.

Now for a Frustrating Habit

Regardless of which side of the pole I felt when looking back into my history, I would often fool myself into thinking that an event happened ONE WAY, when in fact, it really went down in ANOTHER! Either in a softer or harder tone or setting.

By ignorance or ego, I boldly created a false past by either watering down OR stirring up the recorded fact. Or I made new problems out of my usual habit that went on to shape my refined projections to appear as original records. Except, they definitely weren’t!

I, the illusionist, hereby call this ‘refinement’ a ‘slide’… while also convincing others of the same misrepresentation.

Remember, the memory slide is an original record, while the enhancement or shaping is a refinement.

A refinement is fine so long as I see it for what it truly is.

Don’t worry… we’ve all been there with at least a little exaggeration in our step to create the Enhanced Version of Yesterday we so desire.

But now, I’m glad that I know my habits!

Was My ‘Yesterday’ a Fact or Not?

The moment I inflate or deflate any feature from the database by secretly taking a copy, modifying it and then switching it back, I have created a refined projection in place of the actual record.

Identifying or running my life from modifications will always require defending and reinforcing. It simply takes more of my energy!

Inflated-boy
