I’m excited to do my first ever Giveaway on Leyla’s Room today!
You could say, I am one of those people who enjoys giving gifts, more than I enjoy receiving them. To me, it’s the most exciting part, thinking of what that person wants, or needs and coming up with creative ideas to fulfill those wishes, and then of course, the feeling of anticipation before and right after the person opens the gift! Those are the reasons why I like giving gifts so much. Although it is true, if you don’t know the person well, it could be challenging selecting the right type of gift, but then there is always the generic things that anybody could use, like gift cards – impersonal, yes, convenient, also yes…
Since launching the blog 2 weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about doing a little giveaway. Just to show all of you, my lovely readers, how much I appreciate you taking the time and visiting my corner of the blogosphere from time to time.
I am the biggest advocate for keeping Journals for many reasons. I think it’s vital to keep some sort of a Journal where you take the time to reflect, to pour out your most intimate thoughts, ideas, feelings and yes, sometimes frustrations.
I’ve kept a journal for many, many years. I started when I was probably in grade 7 or 8, and although I have to admit I don’t write in it nearly as much as I feel I should, I am still so happy that I do. Because, let me you something, you think you remember who you were in the past, but we tend to sometimes exaggerate things in our memories, or downplay certain situations or experiences that happen to us. Or sometimes, we just simply forget some things that happened to us, or how we reacted. And it is honestly, such an interesting experience to sometimes re-read your past entries. When I do, it makes me smile, it makes me cry, it gives me a perspective into where I was and where I am today. It’s truly amazing, and by doing this Giveaway, I hope to encourage You as well, to start a Journal, and turn to its pages and share whatever is on your mind. I promise, you won’t regret.
Sometimes when I need advice on a certain situation, and I pick up my Journal and start writing, I get amazed at the kind of things that come out of me. Because we are all part of God, and are ONE with all that there is, we all have all the answers to our questions, and all the wisdom inside of us already. It is just a matter of connecting to that place. And I feel that keeping a Journal is the best way to do that, amongst other things, such as: alone time, time spent with nature, meditating, being active etc.
