So, recently a thought came to my mind: It’s the hours that we spend with people, that we will remember the most”. And as I was thinking about that, I realized that it was really true and I decided to write my thoughts to it down.
Yesterday I went out with a friend for brunch and we spent more than 4 hours sitting there and talking to each other. It was brilliant. We had a great time and our discussions were interesting. I’m going to remember this afternoon with a smile on my lips.
And then I started wondering, what it would’ve been like if I would’ve sat at home, spending my 4 hours there reading, watching a movie, drawing something or else. It probably would’ve been a great time too, but would I remember that afternoon all the same?
I don’t think so.
There’s something about spending time with friends, family or basically just other people, that makes us remember the time more. I can’t say what it is, but I guess that time that we spend with others is more valuable. It is time that we set aside to actually be with someone.
Because we want memories of people.
We don’t need to remember afternoons that we spend binge watching series, afternoons where nothing really happened.
I guess what I really want to say, is, that we ought to spend so much more time with people we like. We ought to spend time, that we’ll remember.
I’m out and about,
