A to Z challenge day 7
I didn’t really like to write in guest books before. They are everywhere: restaurants, Bed and Breakfast, weddings, funerals, birthday parties, anniversary, etc.
When I don’t like something I have the tendency to observe intently. What am I resisting? When I find it, it doesn’t mean that I will change my behavior but at least I’ll be free to do it or not. It won’t be about my mood…
– It gives people a space to acknowledge others
– People can tell of something that touched them
– People can relate to other’s experiences
– A sense of community is created for the owner of the book
I finally got my “own” guest book (see featured image), when I left my job a year (and so) ago. Colleagues wrote farewells and testimonies of my contribution to them.
I think that’s when I really got it: giving space for people to express feelings or thoughts they wouldn’t express out loud. Why? Because we just don’t do that.
Tomorrow: Having the right brand (the legacy of Notable “notebook makers” Houses)
With great respect!
