Yellow mandala with text - “What are the sources of human joy? Look no further than the spread of your arms.” ~ John R. Nelson

If you read last week’s blog, you know I’m on a rampage of expressing generosity of spirit this month.  And your first assignment was to write a love letter to yourself and mail it.  Did you do it?  How did it feel?  Now what?

Hopefully, you’re feeling “wow is me” instead of “woe is me”.  Maybe you’ve even received your letter in the mail.  Powerful isn’t it?  Now it’s time to expand your joy bubble. Here’s this week’s assignment.

These past few months have been pretty tough for most folks.  Parents worried about sending children back to school.  College kids concerned about their future.  Families stressed about mounting debt and an uncertain economy.  Yup – lots of things to take a person away from their joy.  That’s where you come in.

Your assignment this week is to think of someone in your family who could really use a boost.  Someone who needs to know they matter and that they are stronger than they think.  Someone who you can send generous love to in a personal letter you write and mail (no text or email – way more impactful to receive a letter in the mail!)

If you didn’t read last week’s blog, I walked readers through a powerful exercise of sending self-love as the important starting point in this process.  You might want to read it before you move on to this week’s assignment.

Now that you’re ready, this is what I want you to do.

You’ve likely already identified the family member in need to receive your letter. Probably it was the first person who came to mind.

Now, make yourself comfortable in a place where you won’t be disturbed.  With nice writing paper and a favourite pen, start writing from your heart.

Tell this family member what you appreciate about them.  Why they are important to you and others.  Use uplifting words conveying hope. Let them know they are not alone.  Take your time.  Be generous.

Then mail the letter.

If they don’t acknowledge the letter right away, don’t obsess about it.  The letter was your gift of generosity of spirit to them.  It wasn’t about you.  True generosity is given without expectation.  But it’s okay to have a silent smile inside. Feel good knowing that you’ve spread your joy to them.

Be sure to read next Wednesday’s blog for another assignment in September’s “Five Letters of Generosity”. It’s going to be a good one!

And until next week, keep your frequency high, your mind open, and your joy ever expanding!

Love from your Joy Mama,
