We All Want To Leave Something In This World That Will Be Remembered For Generations When We’re Gone
A sense of meaning and purpose becomes even more valuable as we all grow older. Whether you have children or grandchildren, the roads we have taken and the lives we have led can become very important to our families. Preserving our family’s values can be very left for our families with just a little bit of effort.
Sometimes it can be tough to pass on traditions and values. Often, younger folks just do not seem to care much and by the time they do, the older folks are gone or their memories have faded.
Long ago, life’s lessons were talked about after Sunday dinners or around the fireplace. Or sometimes, people’s lives were documented in writings or letters but today, writing things down just doesn’t happen much.
In our world of the Internet and smart phones, video technology makes preserving our family traditions and memories simpler and instantaneous. You can preserve these moments on your smart phone, computer, tablet or camera. All that’s needed is a prompt to discuss such as a list.
Here Are Some Ideas To Get You Started:
- Memories of your grandparents
- Stories of your childhood
- Funny things that have happened to you and your family throughout the years
- Holiday traditions and recipes
- Things your family have come to cherish
- Lessons you have learned
When all is said and done, the material things we pass along grow less and less important. What is truly timeless is our love and care for one another as a family. Sharing this can help your family grow and remain strong throughout the years ahead while keeping what makes your family unique and special.
