Exactly What I Don’t Want to Forget

It’s easy to get caught up in everything that’s on that rarely do we take a step back to appreciate everything we have. By “everything,” I don’t necessarily mean material goods, as often it can be as simply as the moments in our weekly routine that makes our lives our own and meaningful to us.

Below are the elements & aspects in my live that I encounter & experience, all are things I do not want to forget when I am older and looking back at my life. Yes, most of them are silly and not everyone will understand them, but nevertheless they reflect meaning & emotion to me. Thus, here is . . .
