How to Make a Yearly Time Capsule?


Each year, brings a new set of memories to cherish. Parents age, children grow up and move away, and new memories slowly erase the old ones. That’s why a yearly time capsule is a great way to celebrate and reflect on the little details that make each year special. Create a yearly time capsule that will include letters, drawings, photos and video/audio recordings. 

It's never too late to make one. And in a few months you can start a new one for 2017!

Time Capsule Ideas
You can choose what to include in your time capsule – memories of the present day. Here are a few ideas:

  1. Print Free Downloadable Time-capsule List and fill it in, listing today’s date, your name, favorite things, hobbies etc.
  2. Include today’s newspaper.
  3. Take some photos of your bedroom, kitchen or art studio.
  4. Write a letter to your children.

Making Your Time Capsule
After you've combined all you want to include, it’s time to assemble your container. Include all your chosen time capsule valuables, and seal your box. And finally you will label box with your name(s), and date when box can be opened.

Now hide it away, and try not to open it until the chosen date/year!


SHARE MONTHLY SNAPSHOTS OF HOW YOUR TIME CAPSULE IS COMING TOGETHER, DON’T FORGET TO TAG @4FATHERSJOURNAL AND USE HASHTAG #IAM4FATHERS WHEN SHARING YEARLY TIME CAPSULE STATUS!


What is a Time Capsule?

A time capsule is a container that is filled with present day things, such as magazines, photos, letters, etc., that is then hidden away in a basement or buried in your backyard, for a time, and then opened by your future self, or someone of your choosing. A present for the future!

The Simple Things Project

Since my book was inspired by the “simple things” in life that brings me joy, I wanted to take it a step further and engage and connect with people by learning some of the “simple things” that bring them joy, and that was the birth of “The Simple Things Project”.

Overall, the whole purpose of this project is to challenge people to have a moment of reflection. Since I realize that a lot of us are pursuing something greater - often times while in pursuit, we tend to lose track of the smaller (simple) things that bring us joy and I wanted this project to reflect that.

"A man chooses a woman as part of a spiritual journey to bump up to a higher level. A great woman is the inspiration. If a man chooses a "lesser" woman for lower chakra reasons, i.e. casual sex for example, he does not want to do the work required to shift his consciousness into being a great man.
