Happy Friday – “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”

There's no time for regrets.

It is often difficult to appreciate every single split second of the present with the so-called “present” instantaneously becoming the “past” as the clock ticks away. Very often we take things for granted and it’s only with our 20/20 hindsight vision that we realise that we should have been grateful. It is only human nature to look back, to recollect and to be overwhelmed by nostalgia for the good old days.

So, let’s live in the present and appreciate what we have (tangible and intangible, material goods and people). Let’s try to embrace the present whenever possible and enjoy the moment.

As a Mama-to-be, this quote couldn’t have appeared before me at a better time. Our little boy will not stay a newborn forever, he will not want me to plant kisses and cuddle up with him forever, he will want to walk by himself and not hold my hands anymore. At some point, he would rather have romantic dinner dates with some girl I’ve not met instead of Mama’s home cooked food.

Therefore, I’m going to cherish the priceless moments we have together. These moments, whatever they’ll be, will soon be etched in my memory.
