A While back , I wrote a post called " How to... Hopeful Note" I recommend you read that one before this post or you probably won't have a clue what I'm going on about ! But assuming that you've read that one, I've got a confession. I've stopped leaving hopeful notes ( post it notes in random places with positive messages on for strangers to find ) I've been busy and a bit down and to be honest they're rubbish excuses. Leaving hopeful notes used to be one of the things that always made my day as well as hopefully the day of whoever found it .. or at least helped them crack a smile !
So, no more excuses. I might be busy and snowed under with college work but I love the hopeful notes and I had a passion for random acts of kindness that I didn't even notice I'd forgotten ! From now on I will leave at least one hopeful note every week and to motivate me to do that , There will be a picture of it at the end of each Monday post :) If you know about the hopeful notes or have read my post about it then I'd love for some of you to do the same thing and maybe even pop a picture of your hopeful note in the comments ! If you're stuck for ideas of positive quotes for your hopeful notes then here's a few to get you going :)
