The most prized possessions we own are our memories-the bittersweet moments we fondly treasure to look back into and smile whenever we need one.Those cute childhood memories,the times we spent being our parents’ spoiled kids,the memories of school and college,the precious little moments of sharing talks about anything and everything with our friends, the moments of laughter,pain,achievements and a million other things.
Memories are precious..
Memories mean treasured moments;
Memories mean time-that was,that will never come back yet stay in our heart and mind forever.
As we move on with our life, we often remember people by the memories we hold of them. We laugh and cry and become all nostalgic reliving all those old memories when we meet our friends who we haven’t seen since ages.We realize that it wasn’t really what we gave our friends or our family or our loved ones that mattered more,it was how much we spent time with them to create such treasured memories and that, made the real difference.
The best gift there can ever be is the gift of TIME.
Sure we all love getting gifts.Besides the happiness of having shiny new things; it is also about that special feeling of knowing that people genuinely care.But besides all the momentary happiness we gain from having things we always wanted,in the end,it is the thought, the love, the care and the feeling that matters the most to us.
Every relationship needs time. We grew up happily because our parents gave us their time no matter how hectic their own schedules were. We have a few friends who are dearer to us than life itself because we gave them our time and they gave us theirs.We fall in love because we give it time to flourish.Those memories, those beautiful moments-everything resulted from time we spent on creating them.
Everything is only a matter of time.After a while, It won’t matter how much you spent on that lavish gift you gave your loved one. What will matter is the amount of time you spent on making people feel special, on showing that for you-your people come first.
Sometimes in life,we get so busy putting everything together that we forget there are people who expect us to spend time with them but are too considerate about our busy lives that they don’t even say it.We tend to be so caught up in our own lives that we don’t realize how long it has been since we last spoke to our loved ones or spent quality time with them.We don’t give them our time,and life passes by in wasted moments which could have been magical otherwise.
As humans,we are emotional beings-we crave love,we crave care,we crave moments of pure joy,we crave happiness. Occasionally we get tired of all the chaos and want to spend some time away and alone but most of the times,we want to be surrounded by people who love us-we crave importance!
For instance,one would rather choose their family and friends come over to see them on their birthday than getting a stack of presents delivered at their homes and not having a single person to share the joy of the occasion with.
The thing is-time,is the greatest gift of all!
I hope all of us realize this and spend more time with people we love.I hope we make fond memories everyday,I hope at times we go out of our way to make someone happy,I hope we share laughter and good times everyday,I hope we share moments everyday and I hope that we live everyday.
