Let me encourage you to document your life.
The easiest way – I think – is to to put it down in writing.
I mean, what do you think I am doing in some capacity right now?
But here is a tip: Don’t die on the sword of perfection.
You don’t have to be Hemingway. And a typo is not going to hurt anyone.
Let your writing be a little dry here and there if need be.
Your kids and grand-kids won’t care about any of that, and that’s kind of the point.
And who said you had to do it a certain way, in a certain paragraph format.
What if you made a list, drew a picture, or write a poem?
Writing also happens to be such a good exercise in clarifying your thoughts…
Sincesuch a repetition is not to be expected, the next thing most like living one’s life over again seems to be a recollection of that life, and to make that recollection as durable as possible by putting it down in writing.
-Benjamin Franklin, Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
