“How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d;”

One of the best movies I’ve ever watched. The movie was well crafted, creatively done and will definitely get into you. It has touched a certain part of me.

Do you have memories you wish you could delete? How can that be done? In this movie, if one isn’t happy and wants to move on.  They can help you and provide that possibility. 

Lately, I’ve been through a lot, frustrations, fear and longing for the peace of mind. Made me want to erase bad memories yet at the same time can’t bear to part with the beautiful ones. How can you erase bad memories and saved good ones only? Sad but this is true, I often have this kind of escapist’s mind. I tend to run away from issues of life, its harsh reality that makes me wander to my own so-called created “world of illusions”.

But then again, back to the reality: What purpose do you think those memories serve? What trials and traumas in your life have been important in your development as a person? One has to learn that these things have its purpose. This will actually make you stronger, learn from the mistakes. Anyway, those memories were just a part of us and we need not dwell on it too much. Capitalize on it; make it as a guide on how to deal with life or something like it.

It only boils down on the truth that we cannot delete bad memories in moments of weakness. Those unpleasant echoes of failure, frustrations and happiness will always be there. Maybe, yes you can erase someone or something from your mind but getting it out of your mind is another story.
