Win a Giving Journal: What’s the Most Exciting and Daring Thing You’ve Done in Your Life?

February 3, 2014

I promised a giveaway after I posted this blog – Brew Your Dreams. So here’s the giveaway post!

I want to make this a little more fun and engaging so I want some input from the readers. It should work like an inspiration for other visitors of this blog. Lately, I thought my life has been stagnant. Yes, everyday is full of surprises, but I felt that I am not doing anything fun, challenging, exciting and daring.. 
I thought of the daring things I have done in my life..

explored places whenever I got the chance and even tried things 
that could risk my life.

But I think the most daring thing I have done is the decision to leave my job and pursue what I really want. I left a stable job in a great company with fun people because I felt that I am missing out on the opportunities outside. 

Most people are regretful when I left – but I am happier now. Time is more precious. I don’t want to blame money (or lack of it) just because I do not have the courage to do the things I want to do. 

Now, I want to draw inspiration from my readers, visitors and random people – I want to know what is the most exciting or daring thing you have done in your life?

Could be pursuing your crush, doing fun things in public, skinny dipping (?), rapelling down cliffs? I want to know.

Please see below for giveaway details:

I will choose two winners – 1 winner of the Giving Journal from the comments, and 1 winner of Beauty Loot from all the contest entries. 

  • Giveaway will run until February 14, 2014. 
  • Open to Philippine Residents only.
  • Contest winners will be announced in this blog.

I cannot wait to read your stories. Good luck!

Contest Has Ended!

I find it really hard to choose the winner for this contest.. So many inspiring stories and experiences. But there can only be one winner, and that is:

Giving Journal Winner
Ma. Clarice Lao Itumay

I find her story/experience really selfless that leaves an important lesson. Money (or lack of it) should not hinder us from doing the things that we love to do. ๐Ÿ™‚ (and I am giving her extra points for the creativity!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

As promised, I have also drawn 1 winner of Beauty Loot from all the entries. Congratulations to:

Beauty Loot Winner
