Send yourself a positive message…Day 8 of 30 Days of Happiness

Send yourself a post card reminding yourself how amazing you are and that your goals are, oh so close!

I first read about this idea in Pam Grout’s book, E-Squared and decided to give it a try while I was on a Caribbean cruise this winter (Jan 2014.) I sent postcards from all the ports of call with messages of encouragement, reminders, and just plain “You are awesome!”

A postcard I sent to myself from St. Lucia, January 2014.


The giddy, uplifting feel I got from reading these messages – weeks later – was amazing. Not to mention what a nice reminder it was of all the amazing places I visited and the wonderful time I had with my Mom.

I highly recommend giving this a try, but don’t wait for your next trip – purchase some postcards from your local bookstore/tourist area and send it to yourself today!
