So I’m part of this 31 day challenge, I’ll write on a new topic every day . I hope to focus them around the theme of my blog (life after college), and hope that through these unique words/topics I’ll add some more glitter to the world, inspiration to myself and others, and have some fun. You can learn more about it here.

I want to capture my life. I want to put it in a tight cage, feed it well, and make sure it never gets far out of my eyesight, but you know what life won’t be captured. It seems like any time I am settled something shakes life up. While granted the shaking isn’t always negative. I mean it was a shake up to get engaged and married and those have been really good things. And there’s bad shakeups like when I was in a terrible car accident.

And I do like the good shakeups, but sometimes even the good stuff can feel like TOO much. Sometimes I just want things to be the same for awhile (although a shakeup in my job would be really appreciated.) So I’d like to hog tie and capture life. But that’s not really possible. So perhaps instead it’s best that I capture life in the way of memories, hold on and hold on to the good, and even the bad, and remember the good in it.

I want to capture the quiet moments of just sharing a bed with my husband. I want to capture laughing with my housemates. I want to capture the gorgeous sunsets (and maybe one of these days I’ll actually capture a sunrise). I want to capture precious time with my family. I want to capture the deep blue skys. I want to capture all the simple moments. I want to capture that unique feeling as I heard my husband make his vows to me. I want to capture the joy of graduation. I want to capture birthdays and celebrations. I want to capture the moments I was angry and didn’t punch someone in the face, or blow up, or swear. I want to capture the pain of my aunt dying. I want to capture the understanding the life is short.

I want to capture it all. I want to live life to the full. So while I can’t control it, I can hold on to it through my memories. And in each new moment live it for all it’s worth, and that my friends is how you make life glitter.
