This one is just fun, costs nothing apart from a few minutes of our time and will hopefully bring a smile to someone's face...
I'VE GOT FIVE MINUTES:
Pop a Post-it note that says ‘You’re AMAZING/REALLY SUPER/GREAT AT COLOURING’ in your kid’s lunchbox. Or scribble a compliment for your spouse on the kitchen chalkboard. Or write and tell your neighbour that you really appreciate them keeping their hedges so trim. Keep it short and super-sweet.
I’VE GOT FIFTEEN MINUTES:
Create a mini Post-it treasure hunt. Choose a person you know – a colleague, your spouse, your best mate – and leave a trail of encouraging Post-its for them to find throughout the day. Take ten minutes to write them (give it some thought!) and five to hide them in places you know they’ll be found.
Oh we love this one. Let’s take this to the lamp-posts, library books, gym lockers and supermarket shelves. Stick random notes of encouragement in public places for strangers to find.
On the basis that Sasha and Sophie can't read (though they love to type on the laptop) and I won't be seeing anyone I regularly see today (it being my day off) the first two aren't going to work... which leaves only the last one... and the need to pop into a shop to purchase some post-its before the fun begins.
As I have to go to town to do some urgent shoe buying today (my twelve year old brown shoes decided to fall apart yesterday, and my black preaching shoes are almost worn out too) I think there might be some opportunities to leave a few messages around the place :-)
And for you , gentle reader:
WISHING YOU A DAY FILLED WITH LAUGHTER AND LOVE,
AND IF THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE, THEN AT LEAST THE LOVE
