A Simple Message
“We live in times of high stress. Messages that are simple, messages that are inspiring, messages that are life-affirming, are a welcome break from our real lives.” Simon Sinek, author and motivation speaker
Leave a message of hopefulness somewhere today with the intention that someone will find your act inspiring, uplifting and transformative. The action is so simple yet so powerful. So, why don’t more people slow down and stop to leave a little mischief or a creative gesture that will uplift another person? Perhaps if there were more simple messages left then more people would see them and be inspired to do the same. The opportunity to dissolve stress comes easier when we focus on what is good and make a plan to share with others. Being anonymous and kind at the same time is a powerful combination to put that message into play.
Plant a simple suggestion that says somebody found some joy in their day and wanted to share it. Create a spontaneous laugh for a stranger. Find the best way to communicate that someone chose kindness and wanted to pass that message along. Affirm for someone else that they are significant, that they matter and that life is worth living. You may never know what the outcome of your gestures might be but through communicating the importance of being good to each other the invisible connection of humanity becomes stronger.
