No one keeps an Instagram or Facebook post

In those moments when we rush to share the meaningful and the flashes of gratitude, love, and joy in our lives with each other on social media, please don’t forget to document that history in real life too.

Mementos

Tangibles

When your kids, parents, friends, or lovers look back, it’s not the Instagram or Facebook post that they will keep – it’s the notecard, the photo, the popsicle stick with a date written on it. These tangible mementos mean something – they mean that we lived, loved, and connected with each other in real life.

I still believe that for the meaningful things in our lives, Tangible will still trump Digital.
