It’s Friday, let’s end the week with something else fun and entertaining. If you are a baby boomer, you’ll remember this little ditty. .
When we hear songs like these, it reminds us of another era.As someone who has just penned a memoir, I can tell you looking back and reminiscing can be bittersweet depending on your own life events.
Some people have a hard time letting go of old memories. When memories are difficult it’s unhealthy not to let them go. But, if they are beautiful, hold on tight to them because those memories can help get you through the rough patches that come with being human.
When we do the “hokey pokey” and shake things up, we find fulfilling things in our midst and get opportunities to experience some of life’s unexpected pleasures. As Louis Tomlinson once said, “Live life for the moment, for everything else is uncertain.”
From time to time we must ask ourselves “What am I doing to put a little zip in my everyday routines? ” Doing something totally out of character gives us all something to write home about, don’t you think? As Will Self once said “Live life and write about life!”
As a memoirist, I’m all for that!
