Hopeful Notes | Random Acts Of Kindness
The idea of hopeful notes started with Carrie Hope Fletcher and her followers 'The Hopefuls' who decided to leave post it notes everywhere and anywhere with positive quotes and messages for strangers to find that will hopefully make them smile. All you really need for this is a pad of post it notes ( .... well that's £1 if that ... ) and a pen ( ... you can steal that from work , you know, in the name of kindness and all that ;) . I wrote a post a few months ago with detailed instructions and lots of ideas for hopeful notes which you can find here. And if you're stuck for positive quotes to write on them then check out my post, Positive Quotes For Hopeful Notes! I often write about 50-100 of them and go out for a whole days to cover a town in them. It gives you so much positive energy to commit a random act of kindness and you can leave them anywhere at anytime ! If you're bored on the bus, find a piece of scrap paper in your bag, write a sweet message and leave it on your seat and who knows whos day you might make !
So this week go out and leave at least one nice note for a stranger , if you write @thehopefulnotes on the top of the note the recipient might even share it onto the hopeful notes twitter page !
Let me know in the comments what positive quote you'd want to share with a stranger or what message you'd write on a hopeful note :)
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
