Dr. Seuss once said, "You will never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory."
Nostalgia comes in waves. On some occasions you find yourself so wrapped up in the here and now, that you forget to miss things from the past. And in other circumstances, you long for the ability to re-experience the most incredible days in your memory. Photos allow us to experience nostalgia.
What if the power of a memory comes with the fact that it can never be replicated? That no matter how hard you try to put together the same exact sequences of events, you will never be able to fully reconstruct your thoughts and feelings and emotions revolving around that one moment in time. I think that's what makes memories so special. Although nostalgia is realer than real, and it may hurt to know you will never experience certain things again, it's all just part of the mysterious rhythm of life.As Dr. Seuss once said,
"You will never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory." Never underestimate the importance of being in the moment and just having the memory survive along with you after the moment has gone. Photos and videos can disappear, but what you hold dear in your heart and in your memory is what matters the most.
