Cyranny’s quickie!




Would you rather forget every souvenir about your past, and only remember your life starting today, or keeping all your old memories, and not being able to keep any new experience you make in the future?





I am not the first blogger to start a ”Question of the day” series. I used to participate to Danny’s Let me ask you a question posts regularly, but since he has almost stopped pubishing them, I thought I’d give it a go. We’ll see if I stick to it, depending on the answers I get!

  1. My past memories are so precious to me. For 18 years I had the most incredible life as a volunteer for 13 years giving 20+ hours a week to volunteering (I worked for money to afford my bread and butter around 20 hours a week) and then for 5 years I was a full-time volunteer working between 40-60 hours a week without earning a penny.
    What a rich and exciting life that has been. The amazing people I have been able to get to know, the proects I was involved in, the places I have been – I can’t think of anything that I would trade for those experiences. If it was not for the situation with Jack and the crime I was victim of…that is my chosen life, career, home. All the new events of my life since then pale into insignificance compared with my life as a volunteer.


  2. I would much rather have the ability to create new versus hold onto the old. I did hesitate, as those experiences probably shape a good portion of who I am. But my kids are babies and I’m still young- perhaps that has something to do with it too.


  3. Ouch that is tough, the problem being that my previous experiences have made me the person I am. I couldn’t imagine forgetting monkey’s birth or his first word (which was dada and still annoys me) however with new experiences you can learn and change with each one, making you a better person


  4. You do not make these questions easy do you?
    I think even though my life has not been an easy pill to swallow, I wouldn’t trade the good memories for anything in the world. Whether they were sad or happy moments, they made me, ME.
    All the wonderful people that I have met in recent years, here alone… If I chose the latter, then I would have never gotten know any of you. Am I right? Of course, I am. LOL! 😘


  5. This is really challenging!! Hmm I think I would choose erase the old memories and life forward in hopes that those I love could fill in the blanks with them! This certainly is tricky. Which would you do?!
