When you hear songs from your youth, you want to be transported to a time of dancing all night and the freedom you felt. When you smell your favourite dish you want to be taken back to your mothers kitchen when you were 10. Do you remember the time when time didn’t exist? When the concept of change was unknown and all of your memories were all new while you paved out your journey. When you were young and free, when you travelled with your love, when you kissed hard, when you became engaged, when you carried your first child, when your journey of motherhood began.
There is point in all our journeys when memories do start to become distant and real. When you see your children grow before your eyes as the long days become short years. Nostalgia from the past and the bitter sweet steps you take through the present seem slightly heavier than before. You tread more carefully now, life becomes precious and you start to realise its the little things that count, its the baby steps now, the days spent with your family that make you feel full and alive.
One day – this day – will become a beautiful memory in your rear view too. A memory can be stored away safely in that vault in your head or in your heart or it can be captured and displayed in your home.
