LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

The art of journaling: Focus on you

Today's encouragement is simple. 

When you journal, don't just focus on those around you.

Write about you.

Journal your thoughts.

Your feelings.

Your stories.

Write about the things that weigh on your heart.

Speaking for myself, I find it easy to write about the boys - whether it's the things that they say, the antics that they get up to, or all the reasons why I love being their mum.

It's also easy to write about our family. Our day-to-day life, our weekly routines, where we go on holidays - documenting these things come naturally to me. And because of this, I do it without second thought. On auto-pilot, almost.

But when it comes to me, well, how can I put it? It's like I almost hold myself at arm's length.

Digging deep takes effort, so I procrastinate.

Writing my own stories down takes thought, so I put it off.

Recording my feelings requires honesty, so I make excuses instead.

I know, however, that making time and being honest today will be infinitely better than my regret in five years' time that I never bothered to try.

And so, my friends, today's encouragement is as much for me as it is for you.

Let's not ignore ourselves in our journaling quest.

Make the effort and make the time to focus on somebody who matters a great deal.
