The earlier you start, the more you remember. As you grow up or think about it, make notes to refer to. Your history and story will be invaluable to your kids or grandkids or further. It will help explain a lot about you and the person you are and the times you lived in. Think of stories people wrote many years ago – they are treasured historical books now that help us understand things that happened in certain areas.
This is a good thing to do for your brain. Open up your memories and write them down. If you have trouble writing, have someone do the writing for you, or speak into a recording device. If you remember things, it unlocks more memories and helps your brain. So write your story - It will help you challenge your brain and your memories.
Add photos that you have in your possession, whether on a computer, online, in cameras, or in photo albums. Remember – younger generations and future ones are unlikely to want to save physical photos – so have them put in an online format. Add them to your story.
Make sure to back it up some way – or send it to other people so it will be accessible later if your copy is damaged or destroyed.
People would love to know or pass on your story. You have your own unique experience that others can learn from or be proud of. Write your story – it’s an invaluable history of inspiring personal history. PR Your Kids Don't Want to Inherit Your Stuff
