Things Your Mama Says, #1

#1 If you really want to remember something, write it down.

I read somewhere that the average person forgets 80% of what they read, what they see, and what happens to them.

I wrote that down and I haven't forgotten it.

Writing not only helps your brain commit a thought to memory, but it gives you delicious little pieces of your life to relive again and again as you rediscover and reread them. I love to reread notes and journals and jottings I have written during different parts of my life.

It helps me see a bigger picture of who I am and what I have done.
