Shortest Best Entry

this morning I'm in the Turkish way of feeling, thinking, wishing and wanted to express what I feel in my native language:
iyi yaşamak, kendinize verebileceğiniz en iyi hediyedir.

~to live a good life is the best gift you can give yourself.


  1. Nihal! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment on my blog today. I am encouraged so much by your words. And how you express yourself here is another wonderful magical words for the soul. You are a light, Nihal!..

    Fyi, for the time being you may not be able to visit my blog, I'm new to blogging and so annoyed to find out that some people just break the etiquette in the blogosphere by violating the copyright. I'm still figuring out what is the right thing for me to do :) any suggestion? :p

  2. It sounds like you woke up in a good mood. I did too! I'm looking forward to a great day!

  3. That's a good one to live by Nihal and I'd like that very much. I work in the logistic field, thus giving some kind of opportunity to travel :D

  4. What a wonderful quote to start a Monday morning. Thank you.


  5. Very well put! I will study those words and try to remember them :-)

  6. I love those words and they are definitely a good "shortest best entry". Great words to live by.

  7. Yes that's a good gift to yourself, haha, I wish you get it today and many days to come.

  8. A very good start today for me to read this words!


  9. @ Ellie: Thanks a lot for all of your words, how nice of you:)
    Regarding copyright thing..
    In my first days I was trying the same like you. Later on, I saw no way, no guarantee. All I can advice you is that when you wake up, seek the strength and courage to do the right thing on your page because I think it's the best, and have no idea better than this: "Think less control, more influence"

    If you believe you can't then you go for writing a book w/ high copyright rules:)

    @ Kate: Thanks for your reply back. I was curious what job you do, and thought maybe the one in tourism sector after having read a lot abt yr country. Hope it doesn't take a load from you; enjoy working in logistics and operations.
