Make Memories Last a Lifetime
Preserving precious moments to share for generationsBy Rue Reynold
Spending time with loved ones or visiting new places are experiences you never want to forget. Recording such events allows you to relive these moments long after they’ve passed. Here are a few ways to preserve memories to share for generations.
Audio or video recording
Live recordings allow you to keep the exact thoughts in your mind or event you witnessed. The feeling of hearing a child’s first words or a graduation speech is something you can hold onto for years to come.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but your experiences are invaluable. Photography is one of the simplest ways to capture memories as they happen. It also allows you to appreciate all the little things you might have missed in the background while focusing on the main subject.
Keeping a written record of your goals and past events is an excellent way to see how much you’ve grown and what changed from the past to the present. A journal can also be a source of inspiration to share with loved ones.
Organizing your photos and personalizing the blank space around them is the ultimate marriage between imagination and context. A scrapbook is especially meaningful down the line when future generations read it as if they’re reliving the memories through your eyes.
Living in the present allows you to appreciate the here and now, but preserving some of your precious moments can also touch hearts far into the future.
