I love words. I’ve been known to sit down and just read a dictionary. When you think about it, words really are amazing. A word can be powerful. Put a powerful word in a sentence and it can make or break a person. I love words that make me feel good and I love seeing them in print and I love to share.
If you know me at all, you already know my propensity to write ‘happy’ or ‘feel good’ words here. I want everyone to enjoy them as much as I do so today I’m going to share some of my inspiration with you in hopes that maybe you’ll feel moved to share, too.
HopeRevo.com is an awesome site and the idea behind it is brilliant. Make up little cards of hope with words or quotes or sayings that feel good and then share them. And if you’re feeling really brave, photograph what you’ve done with those little cards and post them in the Hope Revo Flickr group. Take a look and you’ll find some of my photos there, too.
Kind over Matter is another beautiful site that focuses only on words of kindness and doing kind things. If you don’t feel like making your own little cards, they have a freebie page where you can choose from different, free downloadable cards for you to print out and share. They also have a Flickr group for you to post photos of your ‘card drops’ and yes, I have photos there, too…in case you were wondering…!
Don’t feel like making your own? You can purchase some great little cards, too. I already talked about my new ‘i love you’ cards that I purchased last week. Heidi Geldhauser, founder and creator of these cards, will even print them in different languages for you! All you have to do is ask.
Another great source is Cleansing Thoughts.com. A cool thing about these? They’re for your shower!
The little kit includes 5 colorful affirmation cards (multiple affirmations on each card), removable wall attachment and step-by-step instructions-all tucked in a silky sheer drawstring bag. Rotate these water-resistant inspirational cards as often as you choose! You can also leave them in a little dish or tuck them somewhere for someone to find. And yes, I bought them, use them and love them!
Over at Etsy is The Love Shop, a shop of beautiful, hand-made prints of feel-good words. They’re gorgeous and I want them!
I love the idea behind all of these. With the way our world is today it seems more and more people are in need of something kind and good. If I can make someone smile, even just for a moment, then that’s a good thing. Even better? My kids have jumped on the band wagon with me, from leaving Starbuck’s cards for unsuspecting people in honor of my brother to writing words of encouragment on the sidewalk at an elementary school.
Feeling inspired? I hope so! If you decide to make or purchase any little notes or cards and share them, tell me! If you photograph what you do, share that with me, too. And more importantly, feel good and enjoy it. You deserve it!
