I did this swap a couple of years ago and think it's time for a refresh.
We all need encouragement from time to time -- positive affirmations, reminders that we're loved, affirming words, encouragement to keep going. So we're going to swap some!! Please be as creative as possible. Don't just scribble out some phrases on paper (a few of these are okay but a max of 3).
The container you choose is up to you. Try to decorate it or use one that's already decorative. Containers to consider are draw string pouches, a bottle, box etc. Go for at least 15 encouragements, affirmations, you're-worth-it's!
Try paying a few of them forward by leaving them in unexpected places like library books or bathroom stalls! Leave them for yourself in places where you might need them as well, like your desk or your creative space for those blocked times.
Remember, this swap is about encouragement, hope, and promoting inner strength when times get icky or even mildly icky. Please read your partners profiles before including encouragement of a religious nature. For people who aren't religious and are having a day where they feel discouraged, pulling a "god loves you" note out of their package might emphasize a feeling of disconnection or alienation. And that's pretty much the opposite of what we're going for here.
