safe storage to ensure that it will be there when I need it. Things like fantastic memoirs, my rings, or my family heirlooms have been tucked away so that we could preserve it for as long as we possibly can.
It's nice to know that there are a handful of things that have value to me whether or not it holds any value in the American economy. Sweet things such as a drawing from my five year-old sister have just as much value as a couple of gold rings. I wonder if in twenty years these things will mean anything to anyone else but myself. Will it even mean anything to me on that time?
I learned that I have to live in the present. People always said that and I couldn't quite understand what that meant. To me, it means that whatever you did or whatever you cherish in a certain time can't be disregarded as silly or a mistake. It meant something to you when you said or felt it. While it may not mean much to you now, it did at one point. Live life with no regrets because you did what you did because it was right in that moment.
When you do, your life will be so much more manageable. Things can always be done differently but just believe that the way you did it was good for you. The drawing from my sister will always mean something to me because the memory of her being this five year-old hanging me a squiggly crayons drawing of our family can never be replaced. Safeguard your valuables whether it is in a safe storage or locked away in the confines of your heart. You never know when you'll want them again.
