I went to a devotional about 2 months or so ago and the speaker asked about how we record our "great moments." This got me thinking... How do I? Or do I at all? I don't think that I do. I take pictures sometimes, but I think that mostly I just live in the moments and then let them pass. I desperately need to work on this. Life is amazing, overwhelming, exciting, stressful, and many other things, but most of all, it is precious. I don't want to forget everything that led to who I am today. I want to remember those "great moments;" every detail of them, every bit of my life that contributed to the me of today.
I want so badly to get to the point where I am writing about things in the moment rather than after the fact. I want to get the excitement and the giddiness over every crush, and relationship, and activity, rather than the cool facts afterwards. I want to remember that life is exciting, and I have these multitudes of feelings. I am far more honest with myself in writing, and knowing this, I want to be able to see the truest me that there is.
I know that I love reading back over old journals and seeing where I was a year or 5 ago. It shows me how much I have changed; how I have grown and progressed, and best of all, how I maneuvered the similar problems that seem to be recurring constantly in my life. So, to reiterate, life is crazy, but keeping good records of it will aid me incomprehensibly in the long run. Hopefully I will actually be able to work on this over the summer and make it a habit. It's been on my New Year's Resolutions list for years, so obviously I realize how important it is, it is just so hard for me to keep up! Once again... Here's to improvement! (Hopefully) :)
