I’m going to start this post out right off the bat by being kind of morbid—what do you want to leave behind when you die? I was listening to a podcast today about scrapbooking and memory keeping in general. They were talking about how they imagine their funeral; the room is filed with scrapbooks and all of the people that they love are flipping through each book and remembering the moments that they captured with bits of paper and tons of photos. This really got me thinking about why I memory keep. Because honestly, I memory keep for this exact reason. I memory keep with the intention of leaving something behind so that future family members can watch my videos, flip through my journals, and glance at my scrapbooks to remember who I was/am.
I've always been a stationary addict, but this year I feel like I've really been letting my creativity soar. It's one of my favorite hobbies and source of happiness at the moment. This past month or two I have been building my collection of planner supplies and really obsessing over my current planner system and paper additions even more. Come take a look my current obsession--my Traveler's Notebook!
I filled an entire notebook of memories, to-do lists, experiences, pictures, and more! My bullet journal is a cool way for me to keep a collection of all my things in one spot. I absolutely love flipping through this and seeing how everything has changes, stayed the same, and most importantly, how I've learned and grown.
Two months ago I shared some journaling prompts (here) for those of you who don't really know what to write. These prompts were focused on newbies who might not know what to say to a book of blank pages. I'm going to continue targeting people who might need some inspiration to write some things down by creating these lists of journal prompts on a regular basis.
