If you are the memory keeper in your family, I'm sure you are familiar with the paralyzing feeling of being behind. We have all been there (or present tense...there) and it stinks. That is why I busted tail late 2013, and cranked out four months of digital layouts so I could feel "caught up" going into the new year.
Cut to February 17 when I sat down with my computer to upload and organize my photos and realized that again, I was six weeks behind. Now I KNOW what some of you are saying..."six weeks? That's all? I'm six months behind." or maybe "six years behind". So here's some good news. It's not the end of the world! Capturing memories and documenting them is an ongoing adventure. There will always be work to do, but doing anything is better than doing nothing! (wow, this post is not going in the direction I thought it would. I'm starting to sound like Sue Heck.)
Anyway, if you are feeling behind, or maybe haven't even started, I want to be your personal cheerleader in a rainbow sweater and tell you to keep going. You can do it! (insert cheese and thumbs up) Would you like some inspirational reading? Check out this post and then this one and don't let the title of this one fool you, because it is a great perspective!
I feel so blessed that I have had the ability to stay (mostly) on top of my scrapbooks each year. It is important to me, so makes me so happy to see my kids look through these albums and light up when remembering all the little moments from the year.
No go print your pictures and get moving. You will be glad you did.
