As we are all aware, I am a firm believer that in this life we should collect memories, not things, hence why most of the things I blog about are my passions and most have a story behind them or have some sort of link to my life. And the other day I was on Truly Experiences when I stumbled across this amazing idea to hire a professional writer that can write your very own biography. Tell me that this isn’t the most incredible idea you have ever heard of? If anyone ever wants to know what to get me for one of my milestone birthdays, this is it. To see my journey from being in Zim to growing into this successful woman would be a gift I would cherish for my entire life!
Think about how many public figures and how many celebrities have their own autobiographies so why can’t you and I? I don’t know about you but so far in my 19 years on this planet, I’d like to say that I have lived life, I have created the most amazing memories with the most amazing people, I have learned so many life lessons at a small age and most importantly over time I have collected so many funny stories to tell my kids and grandchildren (some they probably won’t even believe) and after Ms Rona is over I will overexaggerate 2020 making it sound like I survived a zombie apocalypse! To me, nothing in this life is ever a waste of time, not friendships, not relationships, the course you regret taking, spending hours doing virtually nothing because at the end of the day those things made you the person that you are today. So imagine compiling all of that into a book from your beginnings on this earth to the present day, or even proclaiming your hopes for the future within the last chapter? To me, this sounds like the most beautiful gift that you could ever gift yourself and others around you.
For me, I know that my biographer would have it so easy because from a small age I have kept every single milestone I have hit in my life, whether that be taking pictures/videos or keeping small souvenirs I have done it and for it all be in a book, in one place, I love the idea. In fact, I am obsessed. Personally I know that I am destined for greatness and for my children to be able to see it visually with their own eyes and cherish this and eventually hand it down for generations to come sounds so amazing to me. If your children ever want to ask about your life and how you got to be where you are, you just hand them this book 🤣With the way I love myself, I’ll probably even read it to them as a bedtime story, a chapter a night (looool, I am not joking), just so they know how incredible their mama is and how she got to be where she is with her little munchkins.
If you think about it, this could even make an amazing wedding present to give to your favourite couple that has the sweetest love story, I’m sure it’d make them cry seeing their love in words and pictures from beginning to the wedding day. This is the perfect way to create something meaningful for you and your loved ones!
