Do you ever walk into a room to get or do something only to completely forget what you were doing or what you needed?

If so, here is some good news. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what is known as an “event eoundary” in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from another one and thus causing one to forget thoughts that originated in another room.

So, it turns out that there is a reasonable explanation for your Brain Blooper, after all.

Accordingly, the Bible says there are some things that we need to forget and some things that we should never forget.  First of all, do not ever forget God’s love. Secondly, the Bible says that there are times in our life that we need to “forget the former things, and do not dwell on the past!” (Is. 43:18).

In other words, don’t let a bad experience, relationship, or decision keep you from moving positively and successfully into the future. There are times in our lives when walking through the doorway of forgetfulness is a good thing.

Enjoy your Brain Blooper and have a Blessed Day!
