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: Draw near to your heart


The art of journaling - A blog series by Rhonda Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

| Written by Ronnie |

Have you ever been guilty of holding your own emotions at arm's length?

I do it a lot.

I do it in order to get through the day, through the week.

But if we are to write our hearts out, we need to let ourselves in.

In order to document what makes our hearts ache and what makes our hearts sing, we need to draw near to our hearts.

We need to let our guard down. Be vulnerable. We need to succumb.

We need to be still, to remember, to process, and most of all - to feel.

We need to set our thoughts and emotions free - let them tumble out onto the page, become words, become tangible, so that in five or ten years' time, we can read back and remember and give thanks for all that has moulded us into who we are.

Yes, it is scary, and no, it isn't often easy, but it is utterly worth it.

After all, our journey matters. Perhaps much more than we can possibly appreciate in the present. 

So, today, I urge you - give yourself the time and space you need to draw near to your heart.

Let yourself in, so that you can start writing your heart out.
