When I do nice things for others, it makes me happy. Hopefully it brings a smile to their face, too. I decided recently to print up some tags, attach them to candy, and give them to people who might appreciate it. I keep a couple in my purse, a couple in the glove box of the van, and grab a few extras whenever I know I'll be around a lot of people because there's always someone who can use a little lift or word of appreciation.
The Snickers have tags that read, "Laughter is the best medicine. But if you can't laugh, just SNICKER."
I had these in mind for friends who I know are having a hard time for whatever reason.
The tag on the M&Ms says, "Marvelous & Magnificent is what you are".
I saw a stamp for sale once which said this on it and I made a sketch of it in a notebook so I could replicate it later. I love how they turned out.
Remember Pop Rocks? The awesome little candy that explodes in your mouth? I printed off some little cards that read, "I just wanted to let you know that YOU ROCK! Because you totally do" to attach to those.
These are my favorite, and the easiest to carry around. The only rule is that I only give them to people who really do ROCK.
When I'm feeling down, it helps to try to lift others up. I've been battling the blues lately and this is just one little thing that works for me to help put a smile back on my face.
