“Positive emotion trump negative emotion every time.” This quote from the movie Inception holds much truth. If you are or have been the parent of teenagers, you know how true this can be. And while we can’t nor ever will be able to change people’s thinking, we can change our own thoughts. I know for me that requires visual reinforcement.
Which is why I am a huge advocate of Heidi’s newest visual-positive-enforcement tool…the Letterboard. This framed canvas of positive messaging is a much loved and used item for me. And that’s the truth. It is for me…but…if anyone else in my household just so happens to be, eh hem…positively effected by these messages, well then, it’s just a win-win.
Today I am showing off the 16×20 Large Letterboard Frame.
For my message, I am using 3 different fonts. These include the 2-inch Gold Sans Serif, the 2-inch Black San Serif, and the 1/2-inch Black Sans Serif. Pretty sure that last Black Sans Serif is one of my favorites. It’s just so cute.
The other piece I snuck in this message is from the Party Kit. Using Heidi’s handwritten words brings real expression to the Letterboard. I love mixing these fonts up with the handwritten kits. These words add a lot of interest to the board as well as a fun sort of whimsical feel as well.
Repeating my thoughts from earlier in this post, we can’t force others to be positive or to see the world in a favorable light. But we can plant seeds. We can plant positive ideas just by showcasing words and quotes that invite the reader to think higher.
Not only does having these words visual encourage our own thinking, but if we invite others to share and read these same uplifting quotes…then we can provide a positive environment that hopefully we can all share together. It’s a sort of calm that we can create. A calm we create by putting empowering words in front of our family and friends and inviting them to live a more uplifting and happier life.
And that not only makes for pretty stuff, but for a beautiful life. I invite you to enjoy the same.
