“..and all that stays are the memories we create”

While there are only 13 days left for me to graduate, I now live each day with all my emotions alive so that I register as much as possible for things to remain as bitter-sweet memories in my head, because nothing really lasts forever! It’s a hard fact, but we all know that our favourite moments in life are what keep us all going, and somewhere help us to live each day.

More often than not, our favourite memories take us to a place where we were the happiest! Even a slight remembrance of those often puts us at peace, making us smile at things that we had experienced, moments that we had lived, and emotions that we had felt.

One can, of course, let go of moments that may be triggering or unpleasant to recall but to let go of your best memories is like letting an opportunity go to smile again.

1. How do you write a caption for memories?

Writing a caption in general may be exhausting and difficult for some, but writing a caption for memories, I think requires you to express your emotions as much as possible, and live those memories again to be able to pen down exactly how you’re feeling.

2. What are ‘best memories’?

Whatever has been your best experience/feeling, will be your best memory. What may be best for all of us, is extremely subjective, but usually things that happen for the 1st time are considered as some of the ‘best memories’ in general.

The moment in which you thought that this is exactly what you have been wanting to feel and experience will probably also be your happiest memory.
