Spreading Kindness

 Today is my birthday! This past year has been a beautiful and tremendous transformation for me. In the spirit of gratitude for all the gifts that have shown up in my life I want to pay it forward. One of the commitments I made to myself this year was to honor connection more. That means more phone calls and writing letters. I don't know about you but I feel like I am being swallowed sometimes by social media as it becomes more and more prominent in my life. So in an effort to connect with new friends and reconnect with old I want to spend more time truly communicating with others, not just on their Facebook walls. In celebration of my birthday this week I would like to send anyone who comments here a hand written postcard. If you would like to hear from me via snail mail please comment below AND email me your snail mail address to celwyss (at) gmail.com. I promise I will not use your information for anything other than to send you a postcard! I very much respect your privacy.

  1. As a lifelong letter-writer, I am 100% in support of this! Writing a letter -- even a short one -- is such a different experience than shooting off an email, Tweet, or FB post into the Interwebs. You've got my snail mail address :)

  2. In the spirit of how atrocious my handwriting has gotten after decades (now) of typing, please send me a card. I still love snail mail. And I will send one back. :)

  3. Oooh baby!! happy Birthday! I love how you celebrate!! You KNOW I'm in!!! :)


  4. i adore this idea and your focus on "honoring connection" more ... this is something i want to manifest more of in my life too.

    i see how easily caught up i can get into social networking .... the positives and the unfortunate negatives of it.

    thank you for this beautiful you and happiest of birthdays!!

  6. ps
    if you don't mind
    I think I will do this on my birthday
    such a lovely idea!

    1. Thank you Cat, I don't mind at all. I hope others do as well! Can you email me your snail mail? I don't know if I have your address.

  7. Happy Birthday beautiful woman! You took the words out of my mouth about social media. It's a wonderful thing but there is nothing quite like presence and a personally written letter. I would love to get one from you!

    Love how your light shines! Wishing you all the most wonderful things this coming year.


  8. I am SO sorry I am late to this. Happy birthday and I would LOVE to get in on a postcard! : )
