About

Hello there πŸ™‚

How are you? How is your day ? How is life treating you?

Welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

Umm… this page is probably the toughest part of the entire blog, because it is the page that is widely visited on this entire blog and because I will have to write it, edit it and rewrite as many times as I will deem it necessary (to meet my expectations and your expectations).

So who am I ?

I am Zeina Gabriel, a young woman from Lebanon. I have a passion for photography and I like yoga and meditation.

What will you find here?

In this blog, I will mostly be blogging about photography, yoga, meditation, interesting quotes and stories from here and there. I will also post some photos πŸ™‚

Why did I call my blog “say something om”?

Well, when I was about to create this blog, I wanted to call it “say something” but this name was taken. Β So I chose “say something om” because “om” was the first word that came into my mind at that moment.

Why “say something” in the first place, you are probably wondering?

Because sometimes we are so quiet on the outside but very talkative on the inside… umm… because the voice in our head is so busy talking, arguing, discussing, looking, dreaming, singing that we hardly notice that we aren’t saying anything on the outside. Because sometimes we aren’t aware that we are calm (very calm) and hiding behind our walls, and then one day we read a passage in a book that goes like this: “as your read this book, try to stand apart from yourself. Try to project yourΒ consciousness upward into a corner of the room and see yourself, in your mind’s eye, reading. Can you look at yourself almost as though you were someone else? Now try something else.” What about stop reading ? What about visualizing yourself sitting in a room full of people ? You are there just looking at everybody and listening. Try to look at yourself almost as though you were someone else. What do you see? Do you like the way, the person who is supposed to be you, is behaving? It is nice to listen, isn’t it? But don’t you think that it will be much nicer to interact, to say something, to share your point of view and your ideas with others? Did I mention that you are unique and that you have your own ideas? Did I mention that if you don’t ask your questions no one will do it for you? So come on… Say Something…
