Finding The Right Words

This pandemic has brought about some BIG emotions.

  • There is great kindness but also much hostility in the world right now.
  • It’s hard to share your thoughts in a climate where people are emotionally charged.
  • I think we can be honest and still have respect for others that might have a differing opinion.

How does this effect your FotoInspired pages?

  • It depends on who is viewing your pages and might be viewing them in the future.
  • What do you want these people to KNOW about the pandemic we are living through.
  • Your opinions and your words speak volumes to who YOU are as well.
  • You can remain TRUE to yourself without fabrication of your thoughts.

Words are powerful and provide context.

  • Perhaps more so than images, as there is LESS room for interpretation.
  • When written with intent, they are MORE precise in their meaning.
  • They are the MOST important component of your memory keeping pages.

Do you struggle with words?

  • I know I do.
  • I am a LOT more comfortable with telling my stories with images and art – No Surprise!
  • But the ‘Practice Makes Perfect‘ mentality always wins when it comes to telling a story.
  • It is ALWAYS worth the effort to push yourself outside your comfort zone.
  • Write as you would speak to support your own truth.

You can also borrow words.

  • Everyone has their own interests and talents.
  • Mine happens to be shapes and colors – Words and numbers, not so much.
  • Text that speaks to me personally, found via the internet or social media, make GREAT additions to my memory keeping layouts. 
  • Why not use the words that someone else crafted if they feel true to you?

Sources for the written word.

  • Journalist and ‘news; inspired articles – Think ‘newspaper clippings.’
  • Blog posts.
  • Facebooks and Instagram.
  • Magazines and Ads.

Different ways to capture text.

  • Write in a notebook.
  • Copy and paste into a word document and save alongside your photos.
  • Take screenshots of mimes and images.
  • Capture photos of words.


Support your journaling by borrowing the words from other sources.

No need to re-invent the wheel if you don’t have to.

  • Add context to your photos.
  • Assist in supporting your story.
  • Share your opinions in a way that feels GOOD to you.
