  • It's so true that when you get so worn down you find out who you really are.

    What am I doing recording all that happens in life? Yes major things happen that are worth remembering, but how do we choose between capturing it and living it? And why is it so hard to elect the latter?

    Yes we can tweet about it, post it on Facebook or Pinterest, start an email draft, or write a journal entry.

    But why?

    Why am I doing any of the things I elect to do? What's the purpose? How is it making me feel? What am I not feeling that I want to be feeling?

    It's so true that when you get so worn down you find out who you really are. So whatever I choose to do, I want to be present when I get there.
