This quote is so true. We often don’t know how important a particular event is going to be, how much it will mean to us, and what kind of memory it will be until it is over. And are we staying in the moment? Are we present so we don’t lose that memory? Do you soak in the interaction, the laughs, the hugs, the kiss, the twinkle in someone’s eye? Or are you focused on your phone, your mood, what you need to do next, etc? Are you distracted or are you focused on the moment that will be engrained into your memory?
Some of my favorite memories are with someone I saw for the last time or that I don’t see very often anymore. And I didn’t know it at the time, but that moment with them is so important to my memories. It is a huge piece of my joy. Those moments we don’t get back and don’t fully appreciate. The quiet moments. The subtle moments.
