Being Truly Present

I am the type of person who often feels that an experience is not real unless there is some tangible recording of its occurrence. I am leaving behind this tendency. While photos and videos will be helpful when I look back on our Niswarth memories (and I will still take many photos/videos), I am leaving behind my inclination to record every detail of every event. I want to live in the moment during my Niswarth experience. I want to be truly present as I make memories rather than being more occupied with the thought of how I will be able to cherish them in the future. I often care more about a photo than the moment I wish to capture. I am going to trust my mind. I am going to trust that if I remember the way something made me feel, it did in fact happen.
