Were nine days till Christmas Eve, and the holiday spirt is something we all create. To create memories, share traditions and make connections to our past. Each memory we create becomes a nostalgia memory point, always improving our quality of life. Having a large memory bank to pull from in times of hardship has been scientifically proven to increase your ability and speed of rebound from life's hardships. Like one of my favorite Danish quotes says, "Life can only be understood backwards; but must be lived forwards." Soren Kierkegaard.
