You know that pressure you feel? That’s how diamonds are made.
Love, Me <3”
This is just one of the positive daily messages I’ve been posting on my Facebook page in the last few weeks.
It started on a whim when I looked in the mirror and felt overwhelming love and compassion for myself and wanted a way to encourage others to pause for a moment and recognize the incredible human being they have become.
I’d already decided to post one of these daily for a year and then compile them into a book when someone commented that they’d like to receive my little Notes to Self in their inbox.
At first, I thought she must be kidding.
I mean, who wants more email to sift through, right?
But then, MORE people started to comment that they wanted to receive these too.
Starting an additional mailing list seemed like a crazy idea, but people were asking for it so I figured, “why not?”
I created the opt-in form and casually shared it on my Facebook page.
Imagine my surprise when I woke up the next morning to actual subscribers!
I could not have been more shocked, but now I’m looking forward to seeing where this project leads.
Honestly, at this point I have NO IDEA (but I’m pretty sure that cheeky universe has something up its sleeve).
If you’d like to be in the first wave of people that will be receiving my short and relentlessly positive Note to Self emails in your inbox daily, you can opt-in here.
Another awesome surprise this past week was finding myself dancing and singing my heart out with my friend Mary at an Oktoberfest event instead of letting some seasonal sinus congestion keep me at home.
Life is full of surprises, isn’t it?
Some awesome, and some pretty awful too, but if you think about it…things are pretty darn skewed in favor of the awesome, aren’t they?
Until next week,
