Memories are a lot like photos. We create them to enjoy later in our lives. But what good are your photos if you lose them? Just like photos, memories are irreplaceable. But you can’t back up your memories, so once you have them be careful to cherish them for as long as you can. Keep a journal, write a blog, set a facebook status- whatever you do to keep track of your memories, make sure that you do it consistently. You’ll never know when you’ll have your last kiss, see your loved ones for the final time, or get to see your kids again after college. Enjoy the moments that you get and when you run out of them, make sure you have your memories to keep you company.
