I love posting words across digital spaces, but for the longest time, have wanted to make something that lasts longer than a moment.
So here is the first IRL RemindHer. Words from my heart to your home.
Printed on bigger than regular postcards (12.7cm x 17.7cm), with a dedication on the back for you to come back to whenever you need it. Keep this RemindHer for yourself, or add an envelope to send onto a friend (adding a little happiness, delivered into the mix).
Free UK shipping included.
Available in four designs (all images used with correct licencing in place).
- 330gsm paper weight
- Dedication printed on uncoated side
- Matte or gloss to front depending on design
- Matte designs: Footprints in the sand; block colour
- Gloss designs: Mountains at sunset; Walking on the beach
The dedication on the back reads:
"You are not a project to be completed.
You are not always up for review.
You are not a to-do list to never reach the end of.
You are not a syllabus of endless learning. You want some of that self-improvement stuff to actually sink in? Be. Live. Experience. Let it integrate. Let it settle.
We can be so focused on that which we imagine we still aren't, that we don't spend any time noticing who we are, who we have become and who we are becoming. So onward we tread, onto the next external thing that we think will fill us, make us better.
We get better (if that's your aim), by being. By noticing our patterns and rhythms, and what lights us up. By challenging, delighting in, dealing with, and ultimately accepting ourselves and others. This is life's work. You're enrolled for a while. Stop trying to jump ahead and figure it out.
Some of the things that we seek to be taught, no one can teach us but ourselves.
We looking outwards for some things that we can only get from inside. From experience, from mistakes, from realisation, from uncovering and dusting off. You know so much more than you think, or will allow yourself to think that you know. 'Be a student of life,' they say. I get the curiosity, but there are some lessons we're done with. We don't need to sit in that class any longer.
Wisdom is everywhere. We are all students and teachers. But look for guides, rather than teachers. Those who can help clear the path rather than make the way for you. And most importantly, consider yourself your own guide, too. There's no need to look for the adults, the experts, the know-mores. You're one of them.
Some of the things that we seek to be taught, no one can teach us but ourselves."
