hey normal day

I think this is so absolutely true.
When I studied/worked abroad I religiously kept a journal. Every single day. I had to document every moment because here I was in this amazing city and even if it was a 'normal' day it was not a normal day.

I'm grateful I did that but I chastise myself for not living that way every day now. These 'normal' days someday will not be normal and I will look back and not remember so many of them. Or I'll wish for their simplicity and worry I didn't appreciate each one enough.

Why do we let normal days fall away?

So true. Great post. I have kept a journal my whole life. Some day I hope to give them to my future kids along with items I have packed away throughout the years. The normal days are what make up our lives.
