The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them
As intangible as they may seem, memories form a strong base of our lives. Memories, as clichéd as it sounds, are our greatest treasures. I realize that without them we wouldn’t have anything to share, no story to tell, nothing to bereave on and nothing to smile upon.
In little over 32 years of my life, I have graduated from having minimal fears to a bucket full of fears. I have the standard ones, like not having a job, not being able to write anymore, my website might crash, letting down people who I care about and a handful of other weird, irrational fears. But in spite of so many fears of my life I have learned to cherish what best I have – My Mind, My Memories. I come from a childhood packed with millions of sweet memories surrounded by family, friends, and people that understood what love is. These are my best asset and my best treasures of life. I always wonder if I didn’t have that anymore who would I even be.
I always find myself thinking about the time in past that brought some happy and some extremely painful memories. Often I am day-dreaming about that vacation from my childhood days when all 5 of us in our family were together. From flipping through the scrapbooks that we made in our childhood to going through the photographs and remembering all the best things life has t T offer. These and so many other memories bring happiness coupled with sorrow.
Having found my new love for writing I have also realized that I love paying attention to details. Noticing small details of the way someone smile’s or eats. This habit of mine has helped me build more memories. When I have to describe a scene or just tell a story in my life of my life, I do need to use these details as much as possible. So for me, memories are the biggest treasure of my life. My blog is a reflection of my memories and my experience in life. It’s a digital note book in which I am noting down all the details for my children to see what I did with my life, it would be easy to slip into memory. I strongly believe it’s the memories that cling to us, the emotions it evokes and remembers how a particular place or a person made us feel.
They are the foundation of our life and it gives our lives meaning. They help us cope when our loved ones leave us, whether unexpectedly or after a long struggle. I particularly was shattered when my mum left us down here and walked towards the heaven. It been 9 years and till date I am living in and with her memories. They give me strength, the reason to be a good person, to value what she taught us and to live the way she wanted us to live. Her memories are all that I have and that’s my deepest treasure as she is not with me to guide in every step. Without these endless memories from my childhood to my daughter’s childhood today I wouldn’t have made it easily.
So today with my posts I want to be thankful to everyone who touched my life in any way as they left me with a memory to be happy and sad at the same time. These are the moments that gave me precious lessons of life. They have enriched time, spinning the web of people, places and things over the course of my life time.
Towards the end of life, memories are all that we will be left with. There are many who underinvest in memories. Don’t wait for the right time, place and people to be around to build your memories. Time is today and it is now. Just go ahead and fill your life with the greatest treasure that life has to offer… Memories!
