Yay! You've made the leap and decided to give this challenge a go! We are so happy to have you here.
You are investing in your mental health this year, in less of a “spa facial” kind of way, and in more of a “spa for your soul” kind of way.
There are 12 cards in this set. You can choose to set the pace at a card per month, a card per week, or whatever you choose. We highly recommend putting a note on your calendar to write a card.
(Copying the link to the blog and pasting it into a phone calendar can be a really great way to make it easier, or you can navigate to the hub through the product listing for the My Firefly kit. Whatever system you know how to make work for yourself, is what I recommend!)
This is the link incase you want to copy and paste it or simply write it down on a piece of paper or the box that the cards came in:
What to expect:
Every prompt has a reflection about the card from certified therapist Lynn McCracken, which will help pick a person to write to, and think of what to say. Get out your writing utensils, washi tape, and stamps, and get ready for an amazing year!
Everyone needs lights in their life, and everyone has the capacity to give light to others. (That means you!)
Start a list of people you might like to either Thank or Encourage with these 12 cards. Put this list in your phone, planner, or decorative piece of paper that will remain visible near where you write.
These are people that come to your mind often, that you've offered to pray for, or that inspire you to live better because of their example. This list can include anyone you care about. Think of your friends or family members — they can be people you see everyday or people you miss, those who mean a lot to you, or people you have wanted to get to know better. KEEP these lists handy or post them somewhere you can see them as a daily reminder to keep Gratitude & Connection at the forefront of your mind.
Identify people you want to intentionally connect with this year…you can keep adding to this list too!
Start this list right now. I really encourage you to start right now!
Small actions give us momentum. :)
