Treasure your memories #WriteBravely - WTFOW #Day 1

A treasure is something valuable in our life. When I think of treasures in my life, I remember my family, my collection of books, my skills (dancing), the education I received, knowledge I gained etc., 

But, my real treasure is my memory. My memory has stored many moments - Good, bad and the best. The human brain is such an amazing thing. It holds both beautiful and haunting memories. When I flip through old photo albums at home or scroll through the albums in my Google photos, it gives me an amazing feeling. It is a mood lifter and also a motivating factor. Sometimes, I feel proud of my previous achievements and compliment myself or feel happy that I could pass the bad times and sigh a relief.

I am not a good photographer but fortunately, mobile cameras are very good these days that anyone can take beautiful snaps. Over the years, I might have stored thousands of photos in 'Google photos' and I keep on adding to it. (Not sure, when I would have to pay for the additional storage ☺) 
How do you treasure your memories?

I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words #6, which is a one-week blogathon. 



Until next time,

Most memories, good or bad, I let go of. If they find me again, they bring an dded pang of joy, or sorrow. But yes, we do tend to treasure good memories, don't we?

Aesha Shah said...

Oh yes! Yesterday while writing for the challenge, I looked through my photo album to search for pictures and rekindled so many beautiful memories. Memory is sure a treasure.

I love taking photographs. While I don't presume to be a professional at the job, I am slowly learning the art. Pictures are a treasure trove of memories. Loved your take on the prompt, Ramya :)

Memories are such wonderful treasures :-) I agree. I love to take photographs too, though not having or wanting a proper professional camera :D those photos are such wonderful reminders of those treasured moments.

Kala Ravi said...

So true Ramya. Our mind and the beautiful memories it holds is our biggest treasure. I have actually stopped storing soft copies and instead take prints that I display and change on a photoline. I like this system better of being able to physically view happy memories.

Our memories are our locker where we lock up all the precious moments. One thing I dread so much is losing my pictures stored in my laptop. They hold so many priceless memories in them. Lovely take on the prompt.

Natasha Sinha said...

Yes our memories are a treasure indeed. The good ones to rejoice upon and the bad ones to learn and move on with. Pictures can be the perfect store house of our memories. Thank god for them. Though I wish we still had the good old days of photo albums.
