"Now we're back to the beginning
It's just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can't feel it too
Doesn't mean that you have to forget
Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
'Til they're before your eyes..."
-"The Call", Regina Spektor
Aren't memories rather sweet?
Most of the sweetest memories are the moments we take for granted and never notice until it's gone.
This song is so lovely, but it makes me feel solemn on the inside, and a little sad.
Singing songs from Disney movies with my friends in theater (theater in general),
the random staring contests I had with my table group,
playing outside with the other eleven kids in my neighborhood that one summer,
receiving my blackbelt,
singing "No One" in the taekwondo van,
the pride I felt when I got complimented for my writing and singing,
these are some of the memories I would like to relive again.
So please, just take this from someone who knows,
don't ever take the moment for granted.
Once it's gone, it can never come back.
Hold onto those memories forever.
What are some of YOUR favorite and cherished memories?
