Today’s reminder for ‘Dearie’ is simple. You matter. I know sometimes that’s painfully difficult to trust, but it is no less true. You matter, and immensely powerful things begin to rumble and ripple when you somehow summon the courage to believe it.

Peace to you goodly humans! You, and your heads, and your hearts.

About #NotesToDearie — With so much anxiety, tension, and conflict in the world right now, I’m playing a wee game and scattering some optimism for people to discover. Find a note to ‘Dearie’? That’s from me! All messages are composed, hand written, and unless otherwise noted also placed and photographed by me. If you’ve come across one of my notes, let me know! I’d love to hear how it happened!

I never know who might discover these notes, but I hope Serendipity will put these words in front of someone who could use them, which is why I share them here as well.
