'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the most of everything that comes their way' - Anon.
If I ever meet the anonymous person who said that quote then I want to shake hands with them. It's because I live my life by it and that's how Forever Making Memories started. All the way back in summer 2007 I was going through a massive change. I was making transitions I didn't quite feel ready for and I needed to put it in word format. I had to get these crazy thoughts and feelings out of my head.
This blog started as a way to clear my head. It was never really about making memories at all, the title just sounded nice, but it has evolved into so much more than that. In that same summer I went to Paris - a city I had always wanted to visit! And I remember thinking when I was stood outside the Eiffel Tower 'I must blog about this when I get home'. And as they say, since then...the rest is history.
Over the last 6 years I have blogged about so much that it depicts my life to the tee. I have written about my favourite people, my trips away, broken relationships, completed project 365, taken part in memes and best of all? Met some of the most awesome people along the way.
We don't just make memories by taking pictures with the click of a camera. We also make memories from what we hear, from the relationships we form and the opinions we make. It all mixes into one another and that's why I love to blog about it.
This blog is about my life, my thoughts and the collection of memories I have made and will make in the future. In fact this blog was originally called 'Making Memories' but I have changed it to this new title. I will forever be making memories for as long as I live and that fills me with so much happiness. But, if there is one thing I want people to take away from my little piece of the internet is this. Life really is about making memories that last a life time - an eternity in fact. So that one day I can look back, read about it and say 'I'm so glad I did that you know'.
