When my sister & I were little (Ok, I was little...she's 8 years older), we adopted the phrase "Enjoy the moment." We decided to encourage each other to do just that because too many people spend their lives saying they don't have time to watch the sunset. I know I do that a lot, too. We just get so tired & caught up in other things that we forget how important it is to "enjoy the moment." That sunset won't ever look the same, we'll never get to live this day again, the people that are in our lives today may not be there tomorrow.
So that's why I'm starting this section of the blog. I want to encourage you to enjoy the moment. And when you do, it will encourage others (including me) to do the same. Some of my busiest friends have taken the time to celebrate life, & I think that's what keeps them going & what keeps them healthy. As a way to pass that on to you, I am having a monthly givevaway challenge for a year (at least).
The items I'm giving away are actually some things I've had for a while & realized I'm never gonna use. So, yes, I'm getting you to help clean my life, but I don't want these gifts to end up in a pile of your own junk. That's why you'll have to leave a comment of how you'll use the item if I give it to you. Whoever has the best idea will win...& you have to keep me updated on how your "enjoying the moment" with it goes. And I'll even give a few ideas/assignments of my own. If you have a similar item in your own pile of junk (please don't tell me I'm the only one who has one of those), you can always use that to "enjoy the moment" even if you don't win the contest. And I'd still love to hear all about it. :)
And in case you're wondering how this has anything to do with letters, well, I'll be giving one to the winners along with their prize. Plus, some of the prizes are notecards or journals. Also, doing these activities will hopefully give you something to write about. I imagine they'll create a lot of good "true stories," too.
Here's a peek at what I'll be offering throughout the year.
