I wish I could open a door, step through and be in my grandmother’s world when she was 10-years-old. I’d follow her through the day, making notes about when she got up, what she had for breakfast, and which of her two dresses she wore.

And, as much as I want to know about the past, I guarantee you the people three generations from now will want to know about your life [clickToTweet tweet=”people 3 generations from now will want to know about your life” quote=”What Will Three Generations From Now Think About Your Day?” theme=”style3″]
Take a few minutes today and make an audio or video recording about something you did today. Here’s mine:
- was crazy enough to do errands in a pouring rain during the commute
- loved working on my website to music from Pandora and Peter, Paul & Mary Station
- bought a Christmas card for my mom – $8.99. do you believe it!
- debating on registering for a class on writing ekstasis poetry (I had to look it up, too)
- picked up two fresh out-of-the-oven sticky rolls for my sister and great-niece
Sounds like kind of a boring day, doesn’t it? But I bet you someone reading this in 2116 won’t think so. The stories of your everyday life are so worth saving. Trust me on this one!
