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 heart of memory keeping: Let go of guilt

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

Guilt is something we all struggle with, and it is one of the most powerful anti-agents when it comes to memory keeping. 

Guilt points out that we don't journal enough.

Guilt reminds us that we haven't taken as many photos of our younger children compared with our older ones.

Guilt suggests that we've left it too late.

Guilt convinces us that we'll never make it work - that we're not organised or disciplined enough.

Guilt intimates that it's been too long since we last wrote anything meaningful or took any nice photos. 

Over and over again, guilt whispers in our ear, telling us that what we do manage to achieve will never be good enough.

Guilt tells us to not bother. 

Guilt persuades us to give up altogether.

Guilt can overwhelm us.

It can cripple us and stop us from ever getting started - or from ever getting back to it.

Don't give in to guilt. 

Instead, let go of it. Let go of your guilt.

The truth is that it is never too late to start memory keeping, and the reality of life is such that when you do start, you will never be able to invest as much time into it as you want to.

And so?

Just start.

And once you do start, embrace all that you accomplish. Don't dwell on what you "fail" to achieve. Instead, celebrate what you create - your words and your images - and be thankful for what you are able to document. 

Let go of your guilt. And keep letting it go.
