Summer Blog Challenge, Day 47- A Random Act of Kindness

Writing this post for today's Summer Blog Challenge reminded me of something that I witnessed myself some time last year in a Starbucks restroom...

It was posted beside the mirror in the women's restroom.  I didn't know at the time that there was a "name" for this, but I knew that I was touched enough by it to snap a quick pic of it with my cell phone.

Then some time last week a friend of mine on Twitter tweeted about something called Operation Beautiful.  And then it dawned on me that the post-it note I had seen in the bathroom over a year ago had to be part of that!  The mission of Operation Beautiful is to help end negative self-talk, especially with young girls and women.

Ever since I saw that note on that mirror, I have been wanting to do something similar myself.  I just never got around to it.  But then I got that gentle reminder last week. And this blog prompt this week. (Remember those nudges from the universe I mentioned in my 15 Tips to Get Through Life post??)
So, this week I am challenging myself to post at least 3 of these inspiring post-it notes in 3 different public places...

  1. I LOVE THIS IDEA! Where are you thinking about posting them?

    1. Just wherever I happen to be this week... I will keep them in my purse. Mirrors in public restrooms seems to be where they are put most. :)

  2. Great idea! Each one will be seen by people who need to hear the message you're putting out there. I'm going to read about Operation Beautiful now. Sounds inspiring!

  3. Oh, that is amazing. I want to join in now!

  4. This is a great idea! You have to let us know where you end up putting them :)

  5. how amazing of a mission! you are gorgeous!

    come say a quick hi at :)

    have a wonderful day!

  6. I love love love this idea. When I was part of Scentsy, we all did something similar. Trust me, when someone sees something like this on a post it, it will definitely touch their heart.

  7. That is such a great idea! And a great goal to have to spread the joy to others and have little acts of random kindness. I want to go leave quotes now in public places :)

    thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'm a new follower :)

  8. I've heard of this before. What an amazing blessing. I should participate too - I don't know how much it will actually effect the people who see it, but I can't hurt - right?!

    GL with your covert operation this week! :)

  9. You all are going to LOVE my update on this post. Be looking for it tomorrow morning. :) It is pretty cool!
