Positive Encouraging Real Kind

November 17, 2017
Good Morning dear friends and welcome to another Jemma tale, a giveaway and PERK! An exciting project which involves you for the next four weeks.

Do you ever pull yourself out of bed only to discover the coffee didn't come on and you just feel a little off, your spirits aren't quite as high as you'd like them to be and your positive vibes are running low?

You'd much rather pull the covers over your head than pull them off and the notion of being perky is low on your list? To make matters worse, our world seems all out of whack and you just wonder what on earth you can do.

Don't fret, you are not alone, we now have PERK!

Hmmm... you may ask what is PERK?

Well let me tell you!

positive, encouragement, real, kindness

PERK is an uplifting community of positive, encouraging, real people who share kindness and helpful tips on managing their lives and passing that goodness on to others.

PERK is a project similar to the mindset of "Pay It Forward" Perk is one of these movements which grow and thrive within a proactive community.

Passing on PERK is like filling your cup with more coffee and that of a friend or acquaintance.

I am super excited about working on this project with you and so is my neighbor and friend- Stacey

She and I are inviting you to join us, in fact we need you to join us, to share your thoughts, ideas, and stories because when you do, you PERK us up too!

I was "perked," yesterday at the market by the cashier! I left the store with a new friend, a smile on my face and free chocolate bar in my pocket!

Please join Stacey and I on Monday as we rally together to share, learn, hear and pass on PERK.

Let's all work together in this imperfect world to make each other lives just a little sweeter, kinder and gentler.

Oh, and there might just be some PomPoms involved in the giveaway...shhhh!

Happy Friday Friends!

It is amazing to learn sometimes that it is the littles acts of kindness or a smile or a hello that can make your day. It reminds us that we do not have to move mountains to share kindness and love with others. I look forward to this new venture with you and Stacey.
