Secret Agents of Change: Operation Reinvent the Valentine

02-12-2022

Hello!

If you’ve been hanging around me for any length of time, you know that periodically I let you know about a fun Random Acts of Kindness project that I host with poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer.

We call ourselves the Secret Agents of Change and we are a group of people who aim to spread surreptitious joy and kindness in playful and unexpected ways. 

You’re invited to participate in an upcoming secret mission, on Monday February 14th.

One of the twists of what we do is that our missions are always based on one of Rosemerry’s poems. AND, even though these are secret missions, we do spill the (happy) beans together in our Facebook Group after the operation is complete!

Valentine’s Day is one of the Hallmark holidays that can joyful and romantic, for sure. AND, it can be a hard day for people who are grieving, ill, lonely, or lost. It can be any of those things and anything in between. 

We invite you to a mission in which we get to find creative (and stealthy) ways to express love — perhaps in some unexpected places.

Let’s Reinvent the Valentine!

Here’s how it works: Rosemerry shares a poem and Sherry offers a simple, easy-to-execute, hopefully-enjoyable prompt to send you out into the day with purpose and love — and a bit of creativity, too.

 

There are two ways to participate in our February 14th Mission: 

Join Live when we announce the mission! 

Join a live Zoom call with Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer and Sherry on Monday morning, 2/14/22, from 8:30- 9:30am PST (9:30-10:30am MST, 10:30-11:30am CST, and 11:30-12:30pm EST) and we’ll not only share a poem and announce the mission, but we will also have some time to connect and share ideas.

(Think of it like a Secret Agent Social Club!)

Please join us live if you can; we’d love to see your beautiful Secret Agent faces and feel your stealthy, loving, ninja awesome agent energy while we are on live.

(Or, if you prefer to join audio-only or lurking-only, those are just fine, too!)

 

Join via Replay! 

We will post the prompt in our Secret Agents Facebook Group. You can participate anytime on Monday.

No matter which way you participate, you’ll report back in our Facebook Group at the end of the day to let us know how your mission went.

You matter! Your participation is important to us! We LOVE your stories of missions-accomplished. We love the good news feel of your reports.

Gratefully your Spymaster + celebrator,

Sherry

 

P.S. If Valentine’s Day might be kind of a hard day for you, I hope you will join us for the live call, even if you don’t want to participate in the mission. I’ll tell you why: just hearing Rosemerry read a poem is a huge pick-me-up.  AND, this is a warm, loving community that will make you feel like you are wrapped up in a comfy quilt. We don’t keep tabs on anyone — you could show up simply to feel some love for yourself. That would be a wonderful secret agent mission in itself: self care!

P.P.S. If you’re interested in being a part of these secret agent missions, sign up on this mailing list to make sure you get notified + receive the Zoom link.
