Scrapbooking Yourself as a Girl, Youth, and Your College Days
Now that you grasp the importance of scrapbooking yourself and see how it can add value to your life, you've decided to go ahead and do it.
The next question would be, "What's there to scrapbook about me? I don't have a fabulous or most interesting life like Rosanne. I didn't live my life as a grand adventure like Judy."
If you really didn't, then by all means scrapbook your life as one big adventure.
It's a matter of looking for interesting angles under all the trapped layers of self-inhibiting thoughts.
There's in fact too many themes you can scrapbook about yourself to cover in one short article like this.
So for starters, here's some tips and prompts as you scrapbook about your long ago memories as a sweet, young girl or a quiet, bookish and most serious student.
Let's go right into it!
Days as a Little Girl
"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again."
You may have vivid recollections of your days as a young girl. Or you may just have leftover bits and pieces of vague memories of those days.
Nevertheless, it's an important part of your growing up phase and it's the foundation you built upon as you grew into the adult you are today.
So spend an afternoon or a day recalling your most lingering memories of that bygone era...
Beauty of Youth and College Days
"Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life."
Many of us started to feel pretty grown up and liberated the moment we hit 18. Suddenly, the time between 18 and 24 slipped away so fast and before you knew it, the realization hit you that youth is neither forever nor eternal. And you swallowed a little and faced the truth, that there's another bout of growing up to deal with in adulthood.
Some of your most liberating, bittersweet, and confusing experiences might have taken place during your youthful days.
So get out your scrapbooking supplies and let's scrapbook them!
Not only will these scrapbook themes write out the early phases of your life story, these scrapbook pages will fill you up with a sense of certainty. The pages will remind you that you have more living to do, and leave behind a legacy of who you are to your loved ones and your future generations.
Isn't this similar to publishing your own personal triumphs, tears and joy to others who wants to know more about you?
