As a kid from the ’90s, who’s dad is a passionate photographer, I have lots of memories caught on a paper. All of the photos are neatly organized in dozens of photo albums, which are stacked at my parents house. I’m really glad, that so many moments of my childhood are documented, because I love going through them every now and then.
It is really worth to take photos and videos or even to write diaries. Watching old photos is like a travel in time, it brings up all of the memories. It’s important to hold on to them, because they remind us of what we learned throughout the years.
It’s like reading a school book or listening to music from teenage time when you’re an adult. With mature mind you recognize things, which the ‘younger you’ wouldn’t. A photo will bring you a memory back, which you will see now from a different point of view.
Nowadays I’m trying to take as many photos and videos as possible, mostly to keep those memories alive for the ‘future me’. You should consider doing it too!
