Retirees all have rich and rewarding stories to tell which highlight their unique histories. Passing down this precious information to one’s forebears has become a tradition that has existed in some families for generations, and advances in technology now make it easier for this lineage to be stored and recorded in multiple ways.
About My Story Book at Our Retirement Community
Blue Ridge encourages its members to craft journals that can be used to record their life’s history and accomplishments. This is important information that should never disappear in time or be forgotten as it benefits descendants by offering them a glimpse of how things were done in the past and how your family came to be what it is in the present time. This information will be cherished for years to come.
Benefits of Having My Story Book in Your Retirement Community
For many people, if not most, the history of their family is a mystery. Some might have a vague idea of where their ancestors originated from, but few have concrete details or anything which has been recorded in writing. The main advantage of creating a story book is to pass down information that will inform and educate future family members. Rather than being forgotten, they will be able to read your own writings and learn about the things you did and who you were as a human being.
This is something that people take for granted in the modern era. In the distant past, only kings and emperors had the literacy and resources needed to record their accomplishments, while everyone else vanished into the sands of time, with their hopes, dreams, and deeds disappearing with them. This is a fate that no one should want. Do you want your great-grandchildren to forget about you, to not know anything about what you did or who you were? Creating a story book is the best way to ensure they don’t.
