Needed to reach out to someone today for business purposes. Unfortunately their email and contact details were lost when my outlook blew up last week. I considered all my possible options and chose to play connect the people. I recalled the first name of the person who introduced us. I then reached out to the person who introduced me to that person. I sent them a note on Linked-In (because I did not have their details either).
I then forgot about it…knowing it would come to me. Over the next few hours I got flashes. First it was an A then it was the whole first name…and finally the last name. As soon as the name came to me, I typed it into my search engine and found her – even before the connection of the connection had gotten back to me.
The mind is truly an amazing tool. I used to joke about my mom having the ability to not listen but record what was being said to her. Then when she had to respond, she would pause – almost as if she was replaying the recording in her head, and then she would respond.
We humans are amazing creatures. I am truly grateful for my thoughts which allowed me to recall. Now…if I could only find my car keys!
