In the book Untamed by Glennon Doyle it talks about frequently asking her readers to think about what their “ideal, most meaningful life is.” It is so different for everyone isn’t it? We all have influence and history and wiring that makes us each so unique. Our very specific dreams are ours alone.
“The idea has come to me that what I want now to do is to saturate every atom. I mean to eliminate all waste, deadness, superfluity: to give the moment whole; whatever it includes. Say that the moment is a combination of thought; sensation; the voice of the sea. Waste, deadness, come from the inclusion of things that don’t belong to the moment; this appalling narrative business of the realist: getting on from lunch to dinner: it is false, unreal, merely conventional.” -Virginia Woolf
So, I decided to collect memories. To “give the moment whole.” To cherish the present as I work towards the future. To make life meaningful.
This blog is dedicated to collecting moments as well as my thoughts on studying public relations, living and studying abroad, and mindful living.
