I am NOT much of a photo person.
I don’t mind people taking photographs every now and then, of all the things they do, food they eat, places they visit. But I don’t know why, I don’t do so myself. I guess I just am not a photo person.
There are times, however, when I fear that I might regret it.
Do I visit places? Yes. Do I sometimes eat not just delicious but also interesting food? Yes. Do I meet really interesting people at times? Yes. Are there moments I want to remember? Hell yes.
But that’s the problem.
I fear forgetting. I would like to remember all the interesting memories I have built, all the kind people I’ve met, all the amazing moments I’ve had.
I want to remember it all. But what if I forget.
Yes, there are things (and people) that are better forgotten, but there are more of the things that I’d like to remember.
And ultimately, we are a product of everything we’ve been through, no? Both good and bad. That is why I am trying to build a habit of taking more photos. A few video clips too, of course.
I realized that it doesn’t really take much time to take out my phone, take a photo, and put it back in my pocket.
I think 5 or 10 years from now, I will feel good to look back at the old photos of all the places I will have visited, the amazing people I will have met, the beautiful memories I will have created.
I think it will be nice.
Will I remember to take a photo every time something interesting happens or every time I meet someone nice or every time I visit a heavenly place? Of course not.
But I know for sure that I will smile back at the nostalgia that these photos will create.
Maybe you should take more photos as well.
Anyways, I hope you have a great day, my friend. Take care.
Until next time.
