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: Turn moments into stories

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

| Written by Ronnie |

Stories don't have to be long.

Nor do they have to be about 'big events.'

Often, a precious moment that passes in the blink of an eye is all you need to weave a story.

Like when your baby smiles at you just as dawn breaks. Or the spontaneous embrace you find yourself in when your partner comes home. Or lying on your bed when the house is quiet and the moonlight begins to seep through the blinds. Or opening your bedroom window late at night and feeling the cool breeze on your face. Or sharing a silent, heartwarming cup of tea with your mother or father as you sit on the porch together.

All those tiny moments that touch us deeply - they are the perfect inspiration for journaling. 

All you have to do is to sit down, close your eyes, and transport yourself back to that moment.

What did you see?

What did you hear?

What did you smell?

What was said, or not said? 

What did you feel?

Sometimes I like to jot down just a few simple words in my Moleskine notebook to remind myself of a fleeting moment (like this one) that I know I'll want to write about later. 

Other times, I simply look at an old photo and allow myself to relive a particular moment before carving it out with words.

So friends, turn those little moments into stories and preserve them for all time.
