After taking down my to-do list for my weekend work, I saw this cute little notebook that was given to me by a friend/former officemate.
This is where I write down notes and quotes (I’ve seen online) that I am sending my loved ones. I started doing in 2015 and I didn’t realize that it’s been 3 years already because I still feel so excited everytime I write down relatable quotes.
Here are some quotes I have in my notebook:
You know why it’s special?
- This notebook helps me feel better when I am going through something. Whenever I’m sad, I write positive quotes to remind myself that I deserve to be happy and that there are a lot of beautiful things to be thankful for.
- Quotes/Notes are one of my ways to express myself. I like sending it to people that matters. I often send it through an sms, and sometimes, I fill my gifts with so much notes to make my loved ones know how much they mean to me.
- There’s a story behind every note/quote and reading it brings back a lot of good memories.
We all have our own ways of maintaining a positive mindset. If you are feeling down and don’t know what to do, well, you can try writing yourself a note, or maybe you can share with me what you do to keep moving forward. I would also be glad to try your idea.
“By sharing something, I realized that I’m not alone, that there are a lot of people that share with me the same preoccupations, the same ideas, the same ideals, and the same quest for a meaning for this life.” – Paulo Coelho
