Pick Me Ups

A friendly picker upper for the perfect stranger.

About March 5, 2010

Don’t believe in the power of being positive? Well, I do. I believe that everyone could use a little bit of brightening in their day and what better way to do that than through an anonymous card? Along with random bouts of positive thinking, this blog will document some of the anonymous notes I’ve left for perfect strangers to read. Some will take them as a little pick me up, others will find them nonsensical and creepy. I write these cards for the portion of the population who finds a card, reads it and smiles because one smile is worth the three cards that are thrown away as trash.

So read my pick me ups and maybe leave some of your own!

    Wow! I stumbled across your blog while looking for a John F. Kennedy quote and I’m so glad that I did. I absolutely love your blog and the idea of leaving random notes. It’s something I think more people should do. I might start doing something myself!

    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Keep writing šŸ™‚

    Read your note, it was a nice pick me up because I thought you were talking about worms from half way through to the end. But now i guess you weren’t since I showed somebody and corrected me. Anyway, it real cool what your doing, and more people should be doing nice creative things for people like that.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the note and I do love worms. Maybe I’ll write a note entirely on my love for worms. Good idea.

    Hey you. I think these pick-me-ups are amazing, and I think YOU’RE amazing for writing them! I believe in the power of positive thinking too. Sometimes all we need on a crummy day is someone to just make us smile, and I love your way of trying to be that picker-upper for someone.

    Keep it up šŸ™‚ I’ll be sending you my ideas and thoughts.

    This is an interesting blog concept. I absolutely love that you’re trying to make the world a slightly happier place and in doing so also inspiring others to be the best person they can be. I also love that you present issues in your blog with your opinion and don’t just have sappy quotes and writing. You’ve got what you need to change this world. The world needs more people like you.

  8. Thank you for holding a space of positive energy. We all feed off of one another and it is really fantastic when the energy is positive. Like the ripples in a pond, it starts with one little drop and expands into larger rings that reach the banks. Namaste ā™„
