“The root of joy is gratefulness” 

David Steindl-Rast

According to Dr. Flo, “Gratitude is a seed that multiplies once planted”. It grows and leads to transformation. I am deeply moved by its power that reaches the soul and beyond.

At this early point in my blogging career, I find it strange that I draw so much attention from the much amazing bloggers out there. I may sound cocky this way. But no. I’m just too grateful.

Honestly, I should have posted this yesterday after seeing that comment from a fellow blogger. As you might know, my blog-Lebana’s Journal– was included in the list of Heartsinink’s Five Most Favorite Bloggers. She is a new blogger who aspires to become the best version of herself through her genuine expression and creative imagination.

I am human as I am a warrior– this is her tagline.

 Since she started with her amazing blog, this lady never fails to show her continuous support and admiration to some hopeful bloggers including me. She’s always on the point and ever ready to speckle her most colorful and uplifting comments.

Oddly, I didn’t expect this kind of acknowledgement from her. This is too much.  She’s really sweet and adorable. A woman like her is like a gem, rare and hard to find. That’s why I’m eagerly inviting all of my friends/followers to check out her blog. You’ll never go wrong with this one.

Although I mentioned in my recent post that I am writing not to impress but to express, I couldn’t hide the exhilaration knowing that someone recognizes my work. As I look at it, I think that true recognition follows when you put your heart into doing something. And when everything turns smoothly, you should give the credit to those who truly deserve it.


This short post is actually intended for Heartsinink and to all of you who keep on supporting and believing in me. I have a lot of reasons to be happy and grateful today, one of them is YOU!

Thank you!

Message to my 500+ Followers


I wish everyone a good day.

As you all know, my blog is just seven weeks old. It was in the 16th of July this year when Lebana’s Journal was introduced in the WordPress community. Blogging was a total stranger to me until that very moment. Back then, I couldn’t really dredge up what pushed me to create one, the last thing I knew was, I wanted my voice to be heard and the rest was history.

Today marks a special day for me .Lebana’s Journal just hits 500 follows in a short period of time. Well, that’s for me. Of course, I won’t let the day pass without thanking each and everyone of you who have followed and supported my blog. Surely, I would like to send my kisses and hugs to all. Same appreciation goes to those who have liked, viewed, visited, and even commented on my posts. Your words have moved me to be better than I was.

More often than not, I used to think that half of what I write here is garbage. However, it gives me comfort when I realized that at least they do not decompose in my head. Plus the fact that, someone from somewhere devotes his/her most treasured time reading my articles. Again, thank you very much.

Lebanas’ Journal will continue to serve its purpose of spreading good vibes and inspiration to everyone. I am writing to express not to impress and that makes a difference.
