Film or digital, SLR/DSLR or point & shoot, self-processed or One-hour processed; regardless of your choices in photography, if you own a camera, take pictures. Work to take better pictures. Even if you never get a single print published, that shoe box or photo album of your work is a history of who you are, where you've been, and the world around you that can be shared with your children and passed on from one generation to another. If you take pictures and have children, when they are old enough get them a camera. Who knows where it may take them.
