One of my favorite messages I did was something along the lines of “Stop what you are doing right now and blast Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake and dance around! Life’s too short to not enjoy every moment that you’re alive. Do something today that brings you joy, because you deserve it!”.
While I was in Boston, I had to figure out a way to make some extra cash to use as my “fun money”. The jobs I was applying to didn’t want someone for 3 months, my housing contract was only 3 months. So I decided to do DoorDash, because it was super easy to get started, I could make my own hours, and I could listen to my music while driving around.
I wanted to make my time here in Boston meaningful in some way. One day, I had an idea of writing kindness messages and leaving them in everyones orders. I believe the world needs more kindness and it doesn’t hurt to be kind to everyone you meet. So I would use my water color paints to create a colorful background, cut the paper into fourths and then write something kind on each piece. One of my favorite messages I did was something along the lines of “Stop what you are doing right now and blast Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake and dance around! Life’s too short to not to enjoy every moment that you’re alive. Do something today that brings you joy, because you deserve it!”. I liked it because Can’t Stop the Feeling is one of my favorite songs to dance too.
I started not only leaving them in the orders I was delivering, but in places that I would visit in Boston, The Museum of Fine Arts, the downtown public library, in restrooms, in grocery stores, on the T, I would hand them to people, I left them everywhere! I desired to make someones day infinitely better. Everyone deserves kindness, the whole world deserves kindness. Then I realized I wanted to incorporate more people to help me with messages of kindness. At the time I was doing a group mono-cleanse (It’s one of the Medical Medium’s Cleanses that I did to help with some digestive issues) and I ended up asking the people in the cleanse to give me messages of kindness for me to write. I’m glad they were more than welcoming to give me some messages to write, because they also made someone’s day whether they know it or not.
Writing these messages of kindness brought me such joy. It was something that felt meaningful to me, even if I never received any feedback. But I did receive a few messages of gratitude. This did make me feel like I made their day, even if it was those few who sent me messages, thank you for those messages! Eventually one day I had another idea to write this blog on the bottom of the messages to advertise it. So if you’re one of the people that came here because of my notes, thank you for visiting! Regardless of why you’re here reading my blog, thank you for visiting and I hope you are having the most wonderful day ever.
I hope today, you do something that brings you absolute joy. I hope today, that you live your life to the fullest. I hope today, you tell your loved ones just how much you love them. I hope today, you find peace within yourself. I hope today, that you are kind to others. Most of all, I hope today, that you are kind to yourself. Keep shining your light to others, keep being that beacon of hope for others. We need you here more than you know.
