It has been a busy few weeks, as you have seen by some of my posts on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages I have been writing lots of little quotes and phrases. I have been enjoying doing these, sharing the little phrases that have been helping me through the difficult days, or even the good days when I think its just all too good to be true! (we all get moments like that right?)
I have started to have some virtual conversations with some amazing people who are running pages over on Instagram, these people are posting positivity quotes, promoting healthy self-care tips, and wanting to share their own experiences of managing their own wellbeing during difficult times. Many of these pages are run by individuals, and I couldn’t help but wonder what their story behind their page is? So, I asked, like I do. Sometimes. Actually, to be fair it took a lot to send those first few messages, but I did, and I am so glad I did.
When I get an idea, I think things over, and I keep thinking until I convince myself it isn’t going to work. Some of the brilliant people I have been talking to over the last year have been helping me to have the confidence to follow my dreams, and to aim for my best hopes. So that’s what I did. (I need to write about their impact on the path my life has taken, and how much it has changed. See another idea!!!!!) As a result of this I have spoken to some of the kindest people, who like me, want to share kindness, empower others to have hope, and encourage people to never give up.
My hope is to be able to create a safe place online, using Butterflies with Rainbows to accumulate these interviews so that everyone can see these accounts, why they were created without having to go trawling through the internet. To boost mood, self-confidence, encouraging people to be proud of themselves, and their achievements.
Now there are hundreds of people sharing their experiences out there and I am only one person, so this will grow over time, but it will be fun to watch it grow, and exciting to carry on meeting (virtually of course) all the new people from all over the world.
Other news – I think there will be a small number of items available soon from the Butterflies with Rainbows store. I think I am going to be using Etsy for the time being anyway, if anyone has any suggestions PLEASE contact me. These will include postcards (using the quotes which have been written by ME), letters of hope, plus more. Over time content will increase, but it’s still early days.
Finally – One of my other Rainbows came home, That’s 3 of them home. One more to go! I can’t tell you how good this is. There will be more on this VERY SOON!!!!!!
So, as we creep up to Butterflies with Rainbows being live for 2 months, I can honestly say it has been an amazing whirlwind, and so exciting. To read the messages from people, they are truly touching, and I love every single one. I am excited for what the future holds and look forward to sharing the journey with everyone.
