We psychologists sometimes talk about these things called early recollections or your earliest memories.
Yeah, they’re very powerful. In fact, we had an experience with our son, John, this week where we thought, “I wonder if this will be one of his earliest memories,” because it was this perfect summer experience at this friend’s cabin. Water fun, inner tubing, boating, followed by the perfect summer dinner – corn on the cob, watermelon, steak, and he relished it.
Well, we hope that’s one of his earliest memories because it was so fun. And chances are you have a fun early recollection as well. In fact, try this tonight at dinner as a conversation starter. Share your happiest, earliest childhood memories. You’ll see how it brings your spirits closer together.
