Lately, life has been crazy. I’m talking go-go-go, sleep-sleep, go-go-go….repeat.
It’s all good stuff. We’re blessed with good jobs and even more blessed to spend the weekends making a million summer memories.
But here’s the thing.
With all the go-go-going, I’ve been slacking in a few areas. Areas that are important to me. Things like regular exercise, planning meals so I’m not staring into the freezer at 5 p.m., and writing in my journal.
Believe it or not, it’s that last one that’s bothering me the most at the moment. I have a terrible memory, so if I don’t write stuff down chances are good that I’ll never remember.
And I so want to remember these few years that I have babies to cuddle.
I want to remember that at nine months old lilBRO snaps his fingers. Yes, you read that right.
I want to remember the names of bigSIS’ imaginary friends. She has two.
Heck, I even want to remember how I felt the first few weeks of my new job.
In the moment, we think we’ll never forget these kinds of things. How can you forget that your baby snaps his fingers? Or that your toddler made up two friends and named them “Peck” and “Andy.”
But for me, the sad truth is I forget within a year or month or week…
I know this because as I go back and read things I’ve written, I’m often reminded of things I’ve long forgotten.
That’s why I’m excited to give you a peek at a little project I’m working on…
I’ll have full details for you about Project #WriteItDown in the Link Love post at the end of the week. I promise, you don’t have to like to write to join in the fun! I hope you’ll be inspired to join me!
In the meantime, tell me, how do you record memories that you don’t want to forget?
