A Message for You

I like to leave friendly messages in places where people will find them.  Then hopefully people will find me.  I am not as lonely as this makes me sound.

Last year I stencilled the words “Smile. It will be here soon.” in gold paint onto the bus shelter near my house.  I like to imagine that it cheered up a few commuters as well as cheering me up a little every time I waited there.  Ever since then I’ve fallen in love with the idea of someone finding a friendly or encouraging message as they go about their day, especially if they find such encouragement in an unexpected place.

You can read more about my friendly messages here.


  1. Hello Lewis,

    I think you’ve got a great idea here. I read the signs you posted on your other blog…I have ideas!

    This definitely falls into the “random acts of kindness” category. Everybody wins.

    Take care,

  2. What a lovely idea. I heard of a guy that leaves canvass artwork in random places in Brighton for people to find and blogs about it. Random kindness is everyones opportunity to make a difference – albeit a small one.

    With peoples attitudes often being deeply rooted in negativity how great is it to give people words of encouragement and positivity! People should build each other up – not be keen to knock each other down!

    It is a shame that for many readers of Lewis notes; that maybe the only encouragement they will receive that day/week/month….?

    How or who are you encouraging today? It is free and will only take a sec.

    Peace and love.
