Finding Balance Between Living in the Moment and Capturing Memories

As a 19-year-old girl who's usually the one behind the camera, capturing photos and videos for everyone to cherish, I often find myself caught between two worlds. On one side, there's the thrill of being fully present in the here and now – feeling the warmth of the sun, hearing laughter fill the air, and embracing the joy of life's fleeting moments. But on the other side, there's the urge to freeze these precious memories in time, to capture them on camera so they can be treasured forever.

It's a balancing act that I'm still figuring out. Being the one responsible for preserving memories can sometimes make it hard to fully immerse myself in the moment. I'm torn between wanting to document every smile, every adventure, and wanting to simply live and breathe in the beauty of the present.

But I'm learning that it's okay to put the camera down sometimes, to let go of the pressure to capture every moment perfectly. Instead, I'm embracing the spontaneity of life, allowing myself to be fully present for the moments that matter most. And when the time is right, I'll pick up the camera again, knowing that the memories I capture will be all the more special because they were lived and felt, not just seen through a lens.

So here's to finding balance – to living in the moment while also cherishing the memories that we hold dear. As a 19-year-old girl navigating this journey, I'm learning that sometimes, the most beautiful moments are the ones that can't be captured on film – they're the ones that live on in our hearts forever.
