Recently I returned to Rome, the eternal city, after 20 years. My memories from that time are some of the happiest of my life. I was young and went to Rome to volunteer to help kids in an underprivileged area. It was an adventure to say the least and I was full of awe at a city that was soaked in beauty and history. Twenty years later I am still struck by the abundance of what the city and its people have to offer. Revisiting places.
This week, if you can, revisit a place that connects you to a time in your life when you felt truly alive and connected and happy. I know it may not be possible to actually go there but closing your eyes and allowing your imagination to return to that place in your mind is the next best thing. Use all of your senses to recall the colours, aromas, sounds and tastes of that place and time. When you have reconnected into that feeling, open your eyes and bring the feeling of joy and freedom with you as you go about the business of living.
