While this may seem a bit unsubstantial for a #WATWB share, I find it delightful and therefore it meets my own personal criteria.
I’m convinced the world is a better place because of love letters, and that we should all write more of them. I’m on a mission to promote the widespread exchange of love letters, and in fact I’m playing in #the100DayProject with my project #MailstreamMojo. I decided the time of global sequestering was a perfect invitation, and for the last 81 days I’ve created a small piece of art which I’m mailing out into the world with a little love note.
So this delightful story of a 4-year old using a typewriter to create love notes makes my heart explode with happiness.
Seriously how can you not want to be a Lava Girl or an Electric Rattlesnake with Fire?! Oh the brilliant imagination of littles – it gives me great hope for the future.
I certainly believe we could do a far better job in our world living as heart-centered beings devoted to loving-kindness. Can you imagine how different everything might look under the pervasive expression of love and appreciation?
What would it be like to be more generous with our love? Doesn’t everyone deserve a little reminder they are seen and recognized, loved and appreciated? I personally am having such fun with my own snail mail love letter project. It’s a delight to say thank you to people for their friendship and support, and for being who they are.
Of course you don’t HAVE to send a note – you can use email or text and spread your love that way. But seriously, I definitely award extra points for sending love letters through the mail. Just think of all those love vibrations mixing it up with the stream of junk mail and bills. Think of love letters energetically lightening up the conveyor belts in post offices across the world sending little sparks of love into machinery. Do you suppose the mail carrier’s bag is a little happier when it has a stack of love letters nestled amidst its load? Well, perhaps you can’t imagine that, but you no doubt you can imagine the delight of receiving a note.
Marcus Aurelius counseled: “The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.” I certainly believe that’s true and I want mine colored in love.
What about you? Inspired to send a love letter? What color is your soul wearing today? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
