Recently, While invigilating A level exams, this girl comes up to me and thanks me for smiling at her throughout her exam duration, it worked as encouragement she said she was very nervous and somehow by giving her reassuring smile, i helped her perform better.
2 other boys said similar things and unknowingly these kids made my day so much better!
With that fresh experience, I was preaching about being nice to people and giving somebody a compliment once in a while or maybe just smiling at strangers. A single act of kindness sometimes works as a beacon of inspiration. So it inspired me to do something more for someone. I feel like we don’t support each other enough. If you’ve ever seen Carl Sagan’s pale blue dot, you’d be reminded of how terribly small we are in the grand scheme of cosmos. We should be sticking together since all we’ve got is each other.
So in my own way to spread that love, I decided to paint postcards with hand written notes on them, just friendly messages, to make the receiver smile.
If my effort encourages/inspires someone, what more could I ask for? Even if it doesn’t, a smile would be enough for me! Some might think I’m crazy to put so much time and effort into a task that doesn’t repay, doesn’t matter to me. I’m doing my part in spreading good vibes.
So these are some of the postcards I made. The back side of each postcard has a hand written message. Will be putting out these along my city randomly for people to find, haven’t signed them for anonymity. If you live here, you might get one too.
Only you guys know now, hope you’ll keep my secret. 😉
