Birthday Kindness Project 58-58-58

 

Hello friend.

My 58-58-58 Birthday Kindness Project is launching today! It is my decade anniversary of doing this project. (Holy smokes! The years fly by!)

Every year for the past ten years, I have been sending letters of love and kindness to strangers as a way of celebrating my birthday.

The first year I did this, I wrote as many letters as the age I was becoming —  in that number of hours. {Yikes!} 48 letters to 48 strangers in 48 hours.

I don’t think I got any sleep those two days, trying to finish so many letters. It was exhilarating. But also, exhausting.

Starting the next year, I got a little smarter and changed it to “writing as many letters as the age I am becoming in that many days.”

Ahhhh. More sane.

I quickly noticed that the sense of connection and quiet joy extended for a much longer period. I like that I’m immersed in this expansion of love for nearly a couple of months.

I turn 58 on October 2 and I am requesting your help with my project.

Do you know someone who is lonely, lost, disappointed, grieving, or blue? Someone who is going through a difficult time right now and could use a boost of love?

For the past two years, the world has been unsettled and uncertain in so many ways. There has been a lot of grief, illness, and loneliness.

There are a lot of people who need extra TLC.

Think about your circle and community; who is grieving the loss of someone they love — a death or divorce? Who is afraid? Who is disappointed or feeling let down by life? Who is in physical pain? Who is caregiving for someone they love?

Let’s reach out to them with love.

***

Here’s how the Birthday Kindness Project works:

I open up spaces for letters a dozen at a time. I’m reaching out to you, my beloved community, FIRST!

Right now, I am opening up 12 slots for letters.

By limiting the numbers at each request, I know that all these letters will be sent within the next two weeks. That’s important because a lot of the times there is an urgency to the situation.

Then, at some point I will put out a call for more letters. In between I also take requests that come from my blog, social media, and other places.

***

How to request a letter:

It’s simple.

* You email me your person’s name and POSTAL mail address.

* You share just a few highlight sentences about what they are going through and also what you love best about this person. (These are really important because they help me craft a meaningful letter.)

* You let me know if you want the love letter sent anonymously from the Universe, or on your behalf. Note: Only you know whether it will have a greater impact for the letter to come from the Universe or from you. Some people love the magic of an anonymous letter. For others, it might creep them out!

If you are one of the first twelve people to contact me right now, I will let you know and we’ll make sure your friend or loved one receives some love in the mail. If not, I will apologize + invite you to respond next time I ask for help.

Make sense?

***

I want to tell you that what I love MOST about this project is that there is a circular motion of love in action.

You contacting me about someone who needs a boost is an act of love on your part. Pay attention to that. Feel it.

When I receive these requests, I get filled with a sense of loving YOU for being the kind of person who cares so deeply. Then, when I write and send the letters, I get to be filled up again with so much love for the person I am writing to.

Finally, if the letter is sent on your behalf, you will likely receive a rush of love from the person who got the letter. (If the letter is sent anonymously, we can all imagine how uplifting it will be for that person to receive unexpected kindness in their mailbox.)

The love just keeps going ‘round and ‘round.

What I also love most, is that when I am in the midst of this project, I am reminded every single day that we can always expand the container of love.

We can expand how we love, who we love, and the ways we love.

***

I used to feel lonely a lot.

Then, over the years, I started to understand that anytime I was feeling lonely all I had to do was offer love to someone in my life, and voila (!) my heart would be full and I would be connected.

Doing this Kindness Project has taken that concept to a whole new level. It has taught me that there is always someone I can offer love to — and I don’t even have to know them. That means there is an endless of supply of love at the ready. I just need to start the ball rolling by offering some.

I have this profound understanding now that I can choose to feel connected any time I am willing to reach out.

Do you know what I mean?

Have you ever felt this?

I hope you might give it a whirl yourself today.

Reach out to someone and offer a kind word or a gesture of love. Then watch how you feel!

Thank you for being a part of my world. Our connection means so much to me.

YOU mean so much to me.

We’re all in this together.

Seek celebration — even in the dark corners,

xo Sherry

 

P.S. A reminder that when I asked, “Do you know anyone who needs a boost of love,” that person could be YOU. Never leave yourself out of the equation of love. Reach out if you need a boost, okay?

P.P.S Sometimes requests pour in right away. I never know how many when I first request ’em. I may not be able to respond to you right away if you email me. Rest assured, I will respond as soon as I can. I promise.

 

 

Secret Agents of Change: Operation Reinvent the Valentine

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.

 

LoveGram: Will You Do This?

 

Hello wonderful friend.

Thank you for being with me on this human journey.

Thank you for being by my side as we’ve been navigating this pandemic together. I started making these Sunday LoveGrams in March of 2020. And here we are, still walking each other home. (Thank you for that quote, Ram Dass!)

Thank you for being someone who shows up for yourself and for everything life offers.

I appreciate you. I believe in you.

I trust your ability to find the goodness, even when things are hard.

***

Today, I send you the feel of your grandfather’s hand on your shoulder.

I send you the memory of someone you really love who passed away, but whose laughter still echoes in your mind and makes you smile.

I send you the scent of perfume, just the same one your sweet auntie used to wear, and how it makes you remember her warm home and crocheted doilies.

***

Today’s LoveGram is in honor of World Kindness Day, which was yesterday.

It is also in celebration of the Secret Agents of Change, a group of wonderful folks who spread surreptitious kindness.

(To listen to the audio, just scroll down on this page and click play on the audio player below!)

Two weeks ago, when you received my LoveGram, I was flying to Colorado to visit my dear friend, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer.

While I was there, we got to host a special Day of the Dead mission for our Secret Agents of Change. (Rosemerry and I started this group together a few years ago.)

I want to share some ideas that came out of that mission. I think they will touch your heart.

More importantly, I’m hoping you will be inspired to share an act of kindness in honor of someone you love. (If you’ve already participated in this kindness mission, I challenge you to think of someone else to honor and try it again!)

Ready to do this? (I hope so!)

Scroll down below my signature and you can read the poem that our mission was based on.

***

Here is your prompt:

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Create an act of kindness in someone’s name who has passed away. What did that person value? What brought them joy? What is something that would make them really happy if they knew you were doing this in their name? What would feel like an honoring of that person?

Double Secret Agent Mission: Create an audio note for them or write them a letter to tell them about your kindness. You can also write them a poem, or stand and whisper it. Or use a “phone of the wind.” (Google that phrase.)Watch to see how connecting this feels.

***

Here are a few kindness acts, some of our Secret Agents carried out earlier this month:

  • Her dad loved two things: playing cards around a table with family and eating ice-cream. She honored him by donating a bunch of decks of cards to the local Ronald McDonald House and also buying ice-cream gift certificates that the shop clerk could surprise people with throughout the day.
  • His childhood friend who passed away at a very young age, dreamed of a simple life driving trucks for a living. So, our Secret Agent honored his friend by leaving some gift cards in envelopes on top of the trash cans on pick-up day so that the drivers of the collection trucks would find these kind surprises.
  • Her brother, who took his life several years ago, loved rhubarb pie. He once made a special one for her to celebrate her. In his honor, she chose to serve rhubarb pie and share loving memories of him.
  • My mom participated in this mission! Her own mother was diligent in caring for the graves of people she loved, especially her mom and husband — my mother’s grandmother and father. So, for this kindness mission, my mom took some plants to the cemetery and left them on graves that seemed as if they were uncared for and didn’t have loving visitors.
  • I’m honoring my father, who passed away earlier this year, by sending anonymous money to someone I know who is saving up for a trip to her family’s birthplace. My dad was not much of a family man at all — he didn’t seem to want to be tied down — so, this is a way to pay tribute to him even though we were never close.

***

Happy day-after World Kindness Day. I hope you choose to offer kindness in the name of someone you love who has passed away.

And, if YOU are are need of kindness today, please accept this long-distance hug from me. Please be extra kind to yourself and perhaps surprise yourself somehow with truckloads of compassion and understanding. (If that is hard to do, pretend it is coming me from me!)

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,

xo Sherry

LoveGram: Loving Difficult People

Hello friend.

This week’s Audio LoveGram talks about reaching out to people whom we may have a hard time loving. It includes an invitation to participate in a Secret Agents of Change special mission called “Operation Finn.”

My dear friend, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, who leads these missions of love with me, is grieving the death of her teenage son. Finn took his life in August and our mission this week is in honor of Finn.

In my audio today, I tell you more about the theme of this mission, which is to offer love to someone you might find it difficult to love. In our live call earlier this week, Rosemerry told some stories about ways in which Finn showed compassion and love when it wasn’t easy.

Listen to today’s Audio LoveGram now!

Just scroll down on that page until you see the audio player. Click play.

The Secret Agents of Change missions are designed to be as simple or as complex as it works for you. Often, you can complete the secret mission of kindness in just minutes if you don’t have a lot of time or energy. You can also choose to create kindness in a way that is more creative or complicated. It is all up to you.

The point is simply to surreptitiously offer kindness in a world that sorely needs it. (Note: sometimes the person who needs the most kindness and surprise love is YOU. Never leave yourself out of the equation.)

 

Here are just a few of the beautiful ways our Secret Agents have been carrying out this mission: 

* My boss is a miserable person who makes everyone miserable. I bought her a gift and asked how I could lighten her load.

* I wrote an affirming email to someone who pushes my buttons, thanking them for the work they are doing on a neighborhood issue

* I sent a beautiful card to a relative that is challenging for me. I am thanking him for the good he does in the world.

* I wrote a letter to my youngest son, who has not spoken to me for months, and told him how much I love him.

* I’m sending secret gift cards to the teens who work at a local company.

* I have opened my heart and prayed for someone who was unkind to me and my dog.

* It seems this mission chose me. At a neighborhood event, one of my neighbors that I find “annoying” came and sat right beside me. I chose to intentionally listen and engage in conversation with her. I am going to make her a special birthday present.

* I’ve been forwarding some of Rosemerry’s poems to people who are grieving.

* I am writing a postcard to a family member who hasn’t spoken to me for years. (A postcard so that she might read what it says before she throws it away.)

* I sent a message to my pre-teen niece and acknowledged her bright spirit at the family reunion we just had.

* I tucked a purposeful sum of money into an envelope yesterday along with a note that said “Random Acts of Kindness Treats in memory of Finn Thilo Trommer, a boy who loved people and ice cream.” I took the envelope to our town’s local ice cream and surreptitiously asked the manager to pay for people’s ice-cream that day.

 

You can read more stories like this on our Secret Agents Facebook Page where our agents report back when they’ve completed their missions of kindness.

You can watch the video replay of the Secret Agents call  — Rosemerry reads the poem and shares some stories about her son, Finn.

Be kind to the people you pass today.

Be kind and gentle with yourself, okay? (Even the parts you think you don’t like.)

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,

xo Sherry

Secret Agents Mission: Fool for Love

 

Secret Agents are a group of people who aim to spread surreptitious joy and kindness in playful and unexpected ways. 

April 1st is April Fool’s Day and usually it is a time to try and PRANK people.

However, our very own Secret Agent Lynda Allen has chosen to turn this holiday on its head and instead celebrate All-4-1 Day — a day of connection, unity, peace, and goodwill.

Here’s what Lynda says, “Last year around this time, our worlds were getting turned upside down and things seemed pretty dark. I wanted to find a way to encourage myself and others to share their light. You never know when sharing your light might help rekindle someone else’s.

It seemed natural to take advantage of the date itself 4/1 or 1/4, depending on where you live, and let it be our jumping off point for focusing on being All for One and One for All.”

💜

Let’s be Fools for Love and focus on All-4-1! 

Everyone needs your love, light, and stealthy way of adding doses of JOY wherever you go. 

 

💜

Perhaps you’ve already joined Secret Agents of Change and participated in previous missions? If so, we deeply appreciate your dedicated service! Or, maybe this is your first inkling that such a covert organization exists? If so, a hearty welcome to you!

But in either case: Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer and Sherry Richert Belul invite you to participate in this oh-so-important mission. 

We will post the prompt in our Secret Agents Facebook Group. You can participate anytime on Thursday, April 1st!

 

Simple “love-in-action” idea for New Year’s Day (or anytime!)

I’m packing to head to my wonderful mom’s house back East. But I wanted to connect with you briefly before I left.

First of all, I want to wish you a very happy New Year. May 2020 be filled with warm and loving connections to your favorite people in the world. 

If 2019 had some grief-filled or disappointing moments, I hope that you are not alone with those feelings and that you have a community of support.

May you find comfort in nature, in the passing of time, and in small moments of kindness or gentleness that find their way to you.

May you feel loved.

Speaking of feeling loved … I want to share with you a very simple and very beautiful idea that Elizabeth Bernstein told me about. I met Elizabeth earlier in the year when she interviewed me for a column she was writing for the Wall Street Journal about connecting with strangers.

I immediately delighted in Elizabeth’s bright, curious energy. We ended up talking about all kinds of things and she happened to mention a ritual she does at New Year’s.

I loved the idea and circled back with her last week to see if we could share it with YOU!

Here’s a link to a 13-minute audio that you will really enjoy. This is all about the New Year’s ritual Elizabeth does every year as a way of offering gratitude and love to everyone in her life.

Please listen and consider making this a tradition for yourself! It doesn’t have to be on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. It can be anytime at the start of January. Or … anytime at all!

If you do this, will you let me know?!

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,

Give a flower — get some joy!

 

This lovely couple, Doris and Gary, were just two of the many wonderful people I met while at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Roseville on Saturday.

I decided to take a page from my book, “Say it Now,” and give flowers away. (In the book, I encourage people to bring a single flower to your dentist, your post office clerk, your aunt, or your BFF as a simple and inexpensive way to express joy and appreciation to them.) I brought two dozen pink and yellow roses with me to the store and had a blast giving them away.

When I would see a couple walk in the door, I’d whisper to one of them, “Pssst, want to give a rose to that awesome person you are with?” I also asked a lot of children if they wanted to give flowers to the adults who brought them to the store. You should have seen the children’s faces light up with glee! They were all so quick to take a flower and were all a-giggle giving the flowers to their people.

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t quite as easy with grown-ups. As you might guess, many were cynical and thought I was going to ask for money or try to sell them something. However, I’d made a conscious decision that I wasn’t going to bring up my book unless someone asked me first. Instead, I wanted to take those hours in the bookstore as an opportunity to give people an experience of the book.

What was so transforming was to watch someone who was hesitant to take a flower, actually take one and then hand it to their beloved spouse or daughter when that person came around the corner. It was absolutely delightful.

THESE are the kinds of simple joys that are available to us all the time. You know? Just handing someone we love a flower and watching their glee.

So back to Doris and Gary. Gary chose pink flower for Doris and when I asked him if she was his wife, he told me that they’d been married for many many happy years. He had such loving things to say about her.

After he gave her the flower, she came over to talk. I loved their deep interest in positive psychology and spirituality. We talked about what it is like to create the kind of life that is focused on love and kindness. They were purchasing two journals to take with them on an upcoming trip to Portugal. They said every day at the end of the day, they sit down to write about all the good things that happened, that they are grateful for. Later, when they go home, they can re-read all that positive stuff.

Although they, did, indeed, buy “Say it Now,” I would have been so happy to talk to them even if they hadn’t. They brought me such joy.

Now, they are on their way to Portugal and they will take my book to read together on the trip!!

The next time you pass a flower stand, would you consider buying a single flower and handing it to a stranger or a friend? It might cost you a dollar or two and the payoff will feel huge.

I promise.

55-55-55 Birthday Kindness Project

 

 

It’s that time of year again!

My 55-55-55 Birthday Kindness Projects kicked off on Friday.

Every year for the past seven years, I have been sending letters of love and kindness to strangers as a way of celebrating my birthday.

The first year I did this, I wrote as many letters as the age I was becoming, in that number of hours. 48 letters to 48 strangers in 48 hours. Yikes! I don’t think I got any sleep those two days, trying to finish so many letters. It was exhilarating. But also, frankly, exhausting.

Starting the next year, I got a little smarter and changed it to “writing as many letters as the age I am becoming in that many days.” Ahhhh. Much more sane. As well, I quickly noticed that the sense of connection and quiet joy extended to a much longer period. I like that I’m immersed in this expansion of love for nearly a couple of months.

I turn 55 on October 2. If my math is correct, which I hope it is, Friday was Day One.

As always, I need your help.

Do you know someone who is lonely, lost, grieving, or blue? Someone who is going through a difficult time right now and could use a boost of love? 

The way this works is that I have you email me that person’s name and snail mail address. I also ask that you share just a few sentences about what they are going through and also what you love best about this person. Lastly, I need to know if you want the love letter to be sent anonymously from the Universe, or on your behalf.

I’ve already put out a call for the first ten letters — which went out to my Simply Celebrate community who receive my emails every week. (If you aren’t on that list, please join me! Click to the main page/home of this website for the signup.) I want to invite my blog readers to also participate!

If you are one of the first five people to contact me right now, I will let you know and we’ll make sure your friend or loved one receives some love in the mail. If not, I will apologize + invite you to respond next time I ask for help. (This will ensure my letters are timely.)

Make sense?

I want to tell you that what I love MOST about this project is that there is a circular motion of love in action.

You contacting me about someone who needs a boost is an act of love on your part. When I receive these requests, I get filled with a sense of loving YOU for being the kind of person who cares so deeply. Then, when I write and send the letters, I get to be filled up again with so much love for the person I am writing to. Finally, if the letter is sent on your behalf, you will likely receive a rush of love from the person who got the letter. (If the letter is sent anonymously, we can all imagine how uplifting it will be for that person to receive unexpected kindness in their mailbox.)

The love just keeps going round and round.

What I also love most, is that when I am in the midst of this project, I am reminded every single day that we can always expand the container of love.

We can expand how we love, who we love, and the ways we love.

💥💓💥

I used to feel lonely a lot.

Then, over the years, I started to understand that anytime I was feeling lonely all I had to do was offer love to someone in my life, and voila (!) my heart would be full and I would be connected.

Doing this Kindness Project has taken that concept to a whole new level. It has taught me that there is always someone I can offer love to — and I don’t even have to know them. That means there is an endless of supply of love at the ready. I just need to start the ball rolling by offering some.

I have this profound understanding now that I can choose to feel connected any time I am willing to reach out. 

Do you know what I mean?

Have you ever felt this?

I hope you might give it a whirl yourself today.

Reach out to someone and offer a kind word or a gesture of love. Then watch how you feel!

Thank you for being a part of my world. Our connection means so much to me. YOU mean so much to me.

We’re all in this together.

Seek celebration — even in the dark corners,
xo Sherry

P.S. A reminder that when I asked, “Do you know anyone who needs a boost of love,” that person could be YOU. Never leave yourself out of the equation of love. Reach out if you need a boost, okay?

What Alison Had to Say …

My friend, Alison Luterman, is an amazing poet and human being. She is authentic, warm, kind, and caring. She is devoted to her writing and performance as a career, which means that she spends a lot of time working in solitude.

A couple weeks ago, Alison wrote a newsletter article about the importance of connection. I was honored to be featured in that piece. But more importantly, I was so touched by Alison’s insights into how crucial it is that people reach out to one another.

Here’s just a small excerpt from her article, but I hope you’ll read the whole thing:

What meant the most to me about her kind gesture was the reminder of being connected even though our lives are busy and we don’t see each other in person very much … Left to my own devices I can create all kinds of imaginary borders and walls between my self and others. I can worry at small differences like a dog with a bone until the hole overwhelms the whole. Lucky that life comes hammering on my door anyway, or arrives magically through the mail slot.

We never know what someone else might be going through — what sense of disconnection, disappointment, loss, or separation. Reaching out to send a note of love and support is an easy way, as Alison says, to remind someone that we are connected.

We need that.

We all need to feel like we’re held in a wide net of love. It’s part of the joy of being human.

Can you take a moment to read Alison’s short essay and then consider who might need to feel connected to YOU? Will you write them a line or two and put it in the mail? It might be exactly what they need! (And, secret sauce: offering the gesture of love could be exactly what YOU need!)

xo Sherry

P.S. If you click to Alison’s newsletter, you will also have the beautiful treat of one of her poems, $18.88, which is sure to make you smile.

P.P.S. Here’s another way to bring joy in an easy way! Wanna be a Secret Agent of Change and complete missions of kindness every day for seven days? Join our 7-Day Challenge! Operation Love begins on February 17th!

 

 

 

 

{Video} Will you do this? 

Hello! This 10-minute video re-posted from yesterday’s Facebook Live, includes a request, a poem, and a last-minute gift idea for Father’s day.

I hope you’ll take the time to watch the video and then consider this: Do you know someone who may need extra love on Father’s Day?

Is there someone in your life whose dad has recently passed away? Maybe someone whose dad passed away long ago, but you know how much they still miss him? How about a divorced dad or a widower who might be raising young children on his own? Perhaps you know a dad whose child has passed away? Maybe you know someone who desperately wanted to be a father, but was never able to have children?

If there is anyone in your life who might be feeling an acute loss or grieving on Father’s Day, would you reach out to them with a call, email, or text to let them know that you are thinking about them and sending love. 

(If you wanted to go the extra mile for someone who is grieving, you could include a photo and some loving memories of the person who died. It always help to hear beautiful memories about someone we miss dearly.)

The few minutes it takes you to reach out to someone who might be feeling alone or sad on Father’s Day might mean the world to that person. Sometimes just knowing that someone else understands how we’re feeling can change everything.

Thanks for being willing to consider this today.

 

xo

Sherry

 

P.S. If you are a father or someone who loves a father or you have a father figure in your life or you are a father figure to someone, I’m sending you big love and celebration on Father’s Day.

 

The poem, Shoulders, in the video is copyright Naomi Shihab Nye. 

My friend Linda, whom I mention in the video story about her Father’s Day gift to her children, is owner of Mind Over Matter Coaching. Thank you, Linda!
