I am delighted to share this project with you!
I celebrate all things beauty filled–warms my heart, thrills my being, delights me on every level!
So, when I read about this beautiful idea in this article “Little Signs”, I was hooked.
I went right to the website You-Are-Beautiful.com and ordered my stickers–just ten to start.
Not wishing to deface public property or commit civil disobedience, I decided to put my own joy twist on the project.
Wishing to share magic, along with beauty, I affixed the stickers to this paper.
Potent combination: magic + beauty = magnificence!
I assembled these little bundles of magnificence and decided to mail them to nine people. I chose to embrace simplicity, instead of including notes or anything to distract from the message, I sent them as is.
Sometimes, we give away the very thing that we “need” so I kept a reminder for myself and hung it in the entryway to our home:
I love the reaction when guests enter our home! Each one looks at the photo, then says something along the lines of “I am beautiful? Okay, thank you. I am beautiful.”
And I think do you know you are beautiful? Truly beautiful. My home is symbolic of my heart space and as you enter, you will feel the peace, the love, the joy. You are invited in because the experience of you brings beauty to my world, reflects to me something that makes my heart sing:)
And, of course, there are moments that I pass by the photo–perhaps on my way out– and think “Oh, I am beautiful…whew I needed that reminder” and my step is a bit more buoyant as I head out the door.
There are other moments, as I return into my home and perhaps my heart is heavy or my hands are full and my body is tired, and I pass by the photo and think “I don’t feel very beautiful or magical”, but this simple reminder reflects to me infinite potential and I bring that into my home as I refresh/re-center and continue to create.
We tend to think that in order to make a difference we need to share something elaborate or exquisite or expensive so sometimes this keeps us from sharing because we don’t feel we have “enough”. Well, the response to this simple note was heart warming. I have included one here:
“Somehow you knew that I needed that. Made me tear up. Thank you. You are beautiful. too. XO.”
The thing is, we don’t even need stickers or a magical note; it is just as powerful to say:
You are beautiful, thank you for being you.
I invite you to join me and to share beauty and magic today.
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
