One reason I think having a blog is such a good idea for me is for documentation and MEMORY. If you ask my husband or closest friends they will tell you I am horrible at remembering things. It can be something big or small and it is poof… GONE!
On vacation I expressed my concern to my husband about my lack of memory or ability to remember things. This really bothers me. There are so many amazing things I have experienced throughout my 25 years of life and I feel like I can only remember half of them. I have no idea why I can’t remember some things when I can remember others. Is it because I am not trying hard enough or I just simply can’t. I did some research and it is the hippocampus part of the brain that is in charge of short and long-term memory. Either my hippocampus needs some tuning up or does not understand the importance of remembering things!
Today as I was on my run, I thought about all of the great things I have done over the summer. I have had a fantastic summer and I do not want to forget anything, so I am going to blog about them so I can look back and remember. This memory thing is a big deal! When I have children I want to be able to tell them stories about my past. Remembering is something I really want to work on. I am going to continue to do some research and see how I can get my hippocampus in shape!
Does anyone else have a hard time remembering things? Any advice?
