remembering every day.

1 Second Everyday - Age 30 from Cesar Kuriyama }

In the endless cycle of "busy", how many of our days have become a blur?  I found this recent CNN article incredibly inspiring - Cesar Kuriyama decided to take a year off of work and chronicle his time with a one second video clip from every single day. Through this project he realized the importance of making your life memorable and living with purpose - being conscious of your time and not just letting the days fly past you.  

After reading the article I started brainstorming what I could do to make an effort to remember every day - a video wasn't a realistic option with my schedule or lifestyle so I took a different approach and ordered a "One Line a Day" journal that I've had my eye on for awhile.  It's been refreshing to take time and sit down and identify a memorable moment to record each day.

What do you do to remember every day?  Are you currently doing anything to escape the "busy" blur?

  1. I love that idea. My only New Year's resolution for this year was to keep a "moment of the day" journal. I used to journal a lot but I realized over time that it always turned into me complaining about something or getting sad about a situation I couldn't control. So I decided to just write about a single moment--whether it was funny, happy, thoughtful, confusing, etc. I usually write 5-6 sentences right before bed and sleep well knowing that I had that "moment". :)

    1. That's a great idea! Do you have any tips for remembering to do it every day? I've been struggling with my one line a day journal - keep forgetting and having to go back & do a few days at once.

  2. That is such a good idea! I try and think of one good thing that happened to me in the day before I go to sleep but writing down would definitely make me stop and enjoy the moment.

    1. Love that idea! The small, simple moments that happen every day are often overlooked, especially when something negative comes along.
