Once a day I send a random message. A text, email, Facebook message. In any form. Usually to someone I haven’t talked to in a while, but sometimes to someone I know is going through a tough time. Its a simple message, usually along the lines of ‘hey! I hope you’re having a great day today!’ Or ‘I was just thinking about you and wanted to say hi! Hope you’re doing well!’
It takes 30 seconds, and (I assume) puts a smile on someones face.
I started doing it because last summer when we were going through a tough time I received a few of those type of random messages and it made me feel less alone, and thought of. It made me feel like someone cared.
We don’t know everyone’s internal struggles. But knowing someone is thinking of you, its often enough to brighten the day a little.
So I am going to offer a challenge. I am going to challenge every one of you amazing people who read this to spread a smile. For every day in February, send a quick message to someone you don’t talk to often, or someone you know is struggling. You don’t need to post about it, or even tell anyone you’re doing it. But, I bet you’ll feel good doing it 🙂
Love, hugs and more to come later
