The assignment was to text love daily. I won’t lie and say that it went flawlessly, because it didn’t.
I had a couple of days when I didn’t text anyone, although I did make up for it the following day. Some of my texts generated no reply. Even though I wasn’t expecting a reply per se, it was a bit sad not to receive one.
Also, it was a hard reality-check to see that a few friends whom I haven’t kept in touch with too often in the past few months have thought I mis-sent my text, and replied thinking they weren’t the original recipients. I honestly didn’t mean to become so out of touch… My phone plan includes enough texts, so I’m hoping I’ll be more mindful about it after this week.
On the other hand though, it was fun to text love (almost) daily!
As I texted my boyfriend (the only person I text daily in general), I was mindful of sending hearts, hugs and kisses along with the “Pixel’s starting to wake up after his neutering and walks super funny.” type of texts.
I received cute and funny replies, and have set up two meet-ups with different people as the love I sent out came pouring back into my inbox. I am not an avid text message sender (if that is even a valid term for it), so this sort of thing only happens around Christmas time and New Years when I send a collective message to friends wishing them all the best.
This, the second, week’s assignment is to Write a Life List.
I keep thinking “I must do this one day” about several things, file them away somewhere in my mind and then promptly forget about them all. So this week, I’ll think about the things I really want to do, and see about writing them on some nice cardstock which I can then pin to my inspiration board.
See you next week, with updates on my findings and a photo/transcript of my Life List.
