Today, I came up with this thing. And when I say I came up with it I mean I was inspired by people doing similar things and decided to make my own thing of it.
I’m planning on starting this project called ‘The Book Notes Project‘. The idea is that I’m going to leave notes in the library books that I have borrowed (if you remember me posting about it, there are quite a lot). These notes are going to have messages on them like “your hair looks awesome today” or “you are totally awesome”, just little things that may brighten that persons day. At the bottom of these notes I’m going to write the URL of the blog that I created for that project in the hope that they’ll visit it and tell me what they thought.
I came up with this idea basically through a couple of things I have seen on the internet, people leaving notes with random messages, people leaving notes in books about those specific books etc. I remember when my friend Maia left a post-it on my door once, saying “You are beautiful”, which was part of operation beautiful and let me tell you, it was a great feeling. I want to try to give other people that same feeling.
The problem is that there’s so much shit in this world. There’s so much hatred and unkindness. It’s like no-one can do things right anymore. You’re too fat or too skinny, a slut or a prude, too smart or too dumb, a pushover or a bitch and I could go on like that for hours. Every single person has been bullied for something at least once in their lives. It is so rare that we hear kinds words from a stranger.
So that’s what I want to do, I want to bring a little positivity into the world. And who knows, maybe someday it reaches a person who really needed it that day.
Now that I’ve told you a bit about my idea, I wanted to ask you something. I am only me, and I probably won’t reach a lot of people all by myself. So what I would like to know is if you would want to join me in this project. For now, all you’d have to do is leave kind notes in books and maybe think along with me on how to make this thing work. It would be really awesome if I could get a couple of people around the world interested and see what we could do, you know?
If you would like to work with me, leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk!
Let me know what you think.
