Here at Chamilia, we believe deeply in the power of memory. When you live fully, savoring the journey and soaking up every experience, you can make an infinite number of memories a day. Some of the moments are easy to remember—weddings, births, revelations, promotions. Others, however, though they are no less precious, are smaller and harder to hold.
The way the snow looked on the pine in the front yard this morning, or how your dog licked your chin just before plopping down in your lap for a snuggle. That feeling of invincibility when you finally reached a certain mile marker on your run, and the joyful belly-laugh you had when your child dressed himself for the first time. These moments of relative calm, of comparatively tiny accomplishment—are what life is all about. The small moments happen every day, yet they still feel extraordinary. They’re the bits that determine the tenor of your day-to-day life.
For the big moments, you have your Chamilia charm bracelets, photos, even videos. But how do you remember the smaller moments? We love journals, because they’re perfect for this worthy task. It doesn’t matter if you keep a gratitude journal to record a little something you’re thankful for each day, or if you’re an accomplished art journaler who creates an original watercolor or collage on every page. You can find journals for every taste and every ability. By creating a chronicle of your days, your ordinarily extraordinary small moments, can be captured so that one day you and your loved ones can read back and think, Wow, what a life!
