I started the Scrapbook Diary on September 19, 2008. Until October 30 of the same year, I was diligent about filling a page each day with visual and textual representation of my daily life. Yes, it took little over a month for me to lose focus, get overwhelmed by the project and sabotage it altogether. But my vow for 2011 is to stay committed to this. Even now looking back at it, it seems so long ago. I hardly remember the entries or where I was when I assembled them, but the meaning is still clear.
I don’t want to forget anything else.
The pages won’t always be pretty, but they will be meaningful. My deal is this:
Don’t fuss too much over how each entry looks. I should be out living a life to fill the pages, not worrying about how they look.
That said, I like the pages to be balanced and I want to be more creative with their structure. But honestly, I’m more worried about preserving these memories. I’m hoping the added step of posting them here will keep me on track.
