Those special moments

If you took the sum of your moment-to-moment experience at Disney World, or at a party, or at a job, or after dating someone for three years, you may not find very favorable data in how you frame those experiences (most of your time at Disney World was spent waiting in line after all).  But our memory actually works such that we remember overall experiences as positive or otherwise based off just a few peak moments.

If you learn to see overwhelming positive meaning in just a few moments of joy, laughter, a short-lived transcendent experience, an aha moment, or deep a connection with a loved one, you’ll appreciate the disproportionate effort you expend in pursuit of them.
