Valentine Messages

Valentine’s Day presents a special opportunity to show those we love and care about just how important they are to us. Looking for an alternative to traditional chocolate hearts? How about leaving hidden messages for people to find when they least expect it? Not just for family and friends, but also for strangers?

I was inspired by a short article “Love Rocks-Inspiring Messages That Surprise” in the Global Briefs section of the May 2, 2018 issue of Natural Awakenings.

The author explains how “artistically decorated rocks featuring inspirational messages are turning up in Mobile, Alabama, and along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline as part The Kindness Rocks Project (TheKindnessRocksProject.com). Anyone can paint rocks and ‘plant’ them for someone else to discover. Likewise, everyone is invited to hunt for kindness rocks. those that find a rock are free to take it, plant it somewhere else or leave it for someone else to find.”

What’s the purpose? “The goal is to encourage others to find creative ways to reach out and brighten someone’s day unexpectedly, whether it’s through kindness rocks, love notes or random acts of generosity.”

Need ideas for messages? Love Rocks, Have Faith, Trust Yourself, Have Trust in Others, Believe, Aspire, Inspire, Share Yourself, Create, Reach Out, Friends Forever, You Are Loved, Live Your Truth, Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life.

This got me thinking. If you would prefer not to use rocks, how about these same messages on a  heart shaped sticky-notepad to leave around your home, school, place of business or a public building or restaurant?

Not everyone has a special someone to wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day. Maybe you can be that person to put a smile on someone’s face and a warm feeling in their hearts. What do you think?

Please let me know your thoughts. I’d love to hear from you. You can email me at author@elainedonadio.com.

I wish you all a life inspired by the wonder of the world around us. May you find and live your truth, in harmony with people, nature and the environment. May you be a force for good and a source of love and comfort. May the world be a better place for you having lived and loved here.
