DAY 4: NOSTALGIA
I love a good blast from the past like anyone else. I think having good memories of things that make us feel warm and fuzzy inside is a blessing. Memories can bring us back to great moments when we may face difficult moments in the present. This season, I have found a lot of joy in nostalgia. Something that has triggered a lot of great memories was listening to my friend Naseem’s podcast Nas-talgia. She is an amazing host and discusses the psychological benefits of nostalgia (along with all the 90s goodness). If you love Backstreet Boys, the 90s and remembering the past– check it out. Listening to her podcast inspired me to write more letters, get some Lisa Frank stickers (which totally brought me quarantine joy) and gel pens (with sparkles, of course).
Quarantine has brought out our inner child. We have gotten crafty and artsy again (I mean what else is there to do?). Time to summon the good stuff.
What is a memory that makes you smile? Are you nostalgic? What piece of nostalgia hit you in 2020?
Beyond Delia*s catalogs and airchairs– Scripture often tells us to remember God’s faithfulness in the past. How has God been faithful to you in the past?
