Your memories will keep you entertained for a long time after you stop creating new memories.
You say, “it’ll never happen to me.” However, as the years pass You’ll find yourself living the same year over and over again. It’s at that point you will begin to cherish your old memories.
Of course, those memories will have no basis in fact. People, the world and the weather haven’t changed a great deal, what has changed is how much information we’re exposed to these days.
Just remember, happy memories will keep you happy when there’s not a lot to be happy about.
