Memory Box

I heard some great advice once about keeping memorabilia.

Look through everything you have and keep only what can fit into one single box.  This way, you don't have 16 boxes of high school yearbooks, trophies, diaries, old test papers, textbooks, etc.  Keeping it all is burdensome, so, keep only what is precious. 

It's good advice for the memories we hold in our heart, too.  And, it may take some deliberate sorting.

Let go of the things that burden us and weigh us down, but, treasure the beauty we remember.

Like the saying the hangs in my grandmother's kitchen:   
"Forgive everything.  Remember the best."
