I was in a talk recently where we were talking about ancestors and family history. Before I bore you and you stop reading, I can assure you this is an interesting post and one that i’ve been meaning to write for awhile!
I have always been very interested in family history, and am sad to say that I know very little about mine. Also, just last night at dinner, we were talking about my grandparents’ parents and how they were born in the late 1800’s. WHAT!? That seems so long ago. It also got me thinking that it was a completely different world back then, and how we have very little to remember them by, other than memories and saved collections.
In today’s world, we have so much to be remembered by! We have facebook, we have blogs, journals, etc etc etc. It got me thinking that I really want to start journaling and blogging more. I tend to not blog much because truthfully I really don’t think I have the most interesting life. I run, I eat, I study, I read and I hang out with my family (ha!) I do have some friends and a bit of a social life too, I promise! 🙂 In reality though, I want to be remembered in a good way, and as a good person. This may sound rather depressing, and I promise I don’t intend to die soon, but this is an interesting philosophy that has been on my mind a lot lately. So, I have a new goal: BLOG and JOURNAL more. These are RECORDS that we are keeping, that can be kept forever, scary huh? Computers are fascinating, but I can only hope that my great-great-great grandchildren don’t check back on my facebook from say….senior year of college. HA! 🙂
Right now I am in paradise…errrr Florida and absolutely loving it. I am about to go for a run, then lounge out by the pool all day before some visitors arrive and we head to downtown Naples for a dinner on the water. Life is so beautiful!
