Photos and Memories: A Pocketful of Joy

I was thinking the other day about the memories we make, and how many go without any documentation at all. We don’t write about the things that are relevant in our lives; we don’t even mention those things that are dearest to our hearts.
We spend our time making friends on Facebook, or pinning the next recipe from Pinterest. Not that there is anything inherently wrong with those things, but shouldn’t there be a balance?

Perhaps we could get out and take some photos of the world around us. Make some memories. Track the memories we’re making! Share them with the world!

Cultivate a new hobby. Grow a garden. Plant some plants. Don’t water the weeds.

Seek out your history. Do your genealogy. Find your name.

There is so much out there to capture. So much can be found in the lens of a camera. Don’t let your memories get lost. Let them bring you joy.

What can you do to make sure your memories will last and bring you joy?

Writing Can Be Hard

Hi everyone! Hope your summer is enjoyable! I know some of you have children who are already back in school while others are getting ready to enter those hallowed halls soon. It’s hard to believe it’s already August!
I have been working on several projects, and I decided last night to focus on just one. Because writing is hard work!
I was literally in tears and ready to throw in the towel after just 498 words. Really. But I am doing what every writer does.
Tonight, I write again.
What do you do, when you feel like giving up?
