Why do we recall certain moments and not others? 🤔 Some of the memories I recall most vividly are ordinary moments, others are unique and rare, but most of my most vivid memories are times when I was present, content, aware, taking it all in. 🧘♀️ I can also recall vivid memories of my child having a huge tantrum at the end if a 6 hour flight, and the glares I received from other tired and annoyed passengers 🙈- but these memories are fewer. I think our brain has a way of erasing the bad memories to leave room for the good ones.
Why do you think certain moments become eternal in our minds forever, like they happened yesterday, and sometimes we can't remember what we ate for lunch?
