There’s a quote from a movie called, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” that I honestly feel that we all can relate to, at one point or another in life. Today, that moment came once again for me.
Even though I don’t know when I will leave this world, I am quite sure that I have lived over half of my time, already. But if you were to ask me to write a book about my life, I find that I would seriously struggle with some of the key points of it – recalling them, that is.
I was told from a young age that I should keep a journal. In hindsight, I wish I would’ve heeded that advice. Because looking back now, I wish I could remember some of the events that seem like fuzzy blips on the radar now. I chalk it up to the belief that I’m not a writer, but I am writing a blog to help preserve some remaining key points of my life. As I wrote in a previous post, this is to serve as a testament to my life – something that goes on, even when I’m no longer around.
Have you ever just seen your life as hurdles on a track? remembering only the jumps you’ve taken, but not the steps to get there? I don’t even remember jumping over the hurdles. It’s as if I coasted to where I am now. It’s sorta like my own version of the Bible, where you see Jesus is born, he teaches people as a preteen, then he’s thirty-something. a whole lot of life between those points are unaccounted for. And I don’t want my story to just be like that – born, grew up, died… all in half a sentence. And ifI can help it right now, I won’t spend the latter part of my life just coasting. Rather, I’d take the time to reflect ever so often on what had just happened, in the relative moments that come and go.
I’m mostly rambling on from what was a good thought to write about. But if I could have you take away anything from this post, it would be this: Live life to the fullest, but also take time to record your memories as you go. You never know what event you go through will be one that’ll be something worth telling. Your life is worth something. Might as well write down the events that will support that belief.
That is all for now. Thanks for reading.
