Last weekend , I went to Washington , DC, to attend the meeting of the employees Justice Sandra Day O’Connor . This event made me happy for many reasons. I was excited to see Justice O’Connor . I enjoyed catching up with many old friends and acquaintances . We enjoyed walking through the corridors of the Palace of the Supreme Court.
and all weekend I was reminded of the usefulness of my resolution to stay in touch with my past .
I have a terrible memory of my past. I barely remember my childhood . I have few memories of college and law school – though once I got married , I had the advantage of being able to see the memory of my husband. Many of my resolutions – such as keeping a diary of a sentence or take pictures or take photos of my life – offer to help me remember my past.
Why are not more than a lawyer, it is very easy for me to lose touch with my lawyer. My husband and I met in law school – you can see photo highlights here – but is not a lawyer anymore, either . Or maybe it’s more accurate to say that we are not practicing law more . Once a lawyer , always a lawyer.
I love being back in that environment , to hear Bill talking and hanging out with friends . It makes me feel more connected to my past, which makes me feel more grounded , more consistent … .
Whenever I’m trying to decide how to spend my precious time , energy or money , I ask a series of questions . “This broaden or deepen my relationships ? ” ” This will help create a climate of growth in my life? ” “This is a way to be Gretchen ? ” and ” This will help me to connect to my past? “
What about you? Intervenes to try to stay in touch with your past ? Are you afraid of losing contact with any part of your past?
I write a lot about the ‘ importance of maintaining strong memories around home happier.
