Forget It!

At what age does memory loss start to set in? At what age do we enter a room, completely forgetting why we’re there? Like, completely forgetting! I think this is happening to me. Twice in two days, I’ve had virtually no memory of two conversations I’ve had, both with my mom, apparently promising to do something. Not good when you don’t remember. Worse, when you disappoint your mom.

But there you have it. I’ve done that. Twice. In two days.

Perhaps my brain is full. Can that happen? My brain cannot possibly hold one more “to do” or one more appointment. My brain is absorbing all the upcoming dates and times for theater rehearsals & recitals, the camping trip reminders, school project & fundraising reminders, tree lightings, and all things holiday. I don’t think I have enough room up in there to hold day to day conversations. How can I be held accountable on things I don’t remember? Can I get off on a technicality?

And on top of it, today I woke up feeling so yucky, I didn’t even want to get out of bed. But that is never an option. There are lunches to be made, backpacks to be checked, beds to be made and kids to get off to school.

I’m not alone in this right? Y’all feel that way too right? Right? We all have days when life is busy and we have a thousand things to remember. We have days where our brain is full and we overlook something right?

I know what you’re thinking. I need to slow down. The problem is, I don’t know how to, really. And if I did know how, I don’t think I would. I mean, I’ve always been somewhat of a multitasker, an overachiever, and I don’t think I’d know what to do with myself if I didn’t have a bunch of things on my plate. Sitting…being stagnant…it’s just not my jam.

So here I am. Trying to write about it, hoping that by the end of this, I’ll have a solution. That somehow, writing it all down will give me clarity.

Maybe I should try yoga?

But then again, that would be just one more thing on my list of things I’d inevitably forget.

    Great post! I’m 25 and I feel like my memory is terrible, so you’re definitely not alone. I try to recall more distant memories from my childhood to see how much I can remember. I think maybe writing down highlights from those conversations may help. I love journaling, and I know when you write something down you’re more likely to remember it, but also it’ll be fun to look back at later on and remember. Yoga is great too!! It definitely helps to clear the clutter in your mind. Good luck!
