December 15 – 5 Minutes
Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
In some ways I feel as though I have already forgotten everything I would like to remember. My Mum reminded me the other day that earlier this year when Moira was tired she’d yell out: NAP! I had already forgotten that even though at the time I thought it was something I could never forget. My memory is poor at the best of times but I suspect this year will be particularly bad for memories because I tend to be extra forgetful when I am pregnant and sometimes I think I have done something when really I only intended to do it and then my brain stamped it as done and moved on. (One more reason why I never want to be pregnant again.) This is one of the many reasons I blog and take photos – so I can go back and remember all of the little moments. But even all the little moments can’t be captured and I find that stressful at times – anyone else feel that way? I mean, migraine why do we think we need to capture every. single. moment. It’s little moment overload.
So I’m not going to set an alarm for 5 minutes and write down everything I want to remember because that will just cause me anxiety. I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing.
