obsessed.: Notes from the Universe

A while ago, I read one of Kaelah's blog posts in which she mentioned Notes from the Universe. I thought: "Now that's cute. Getting good thoughts from The Universe." I wasn't sure who was doing the actual sending, so I did a little digging.

The author of the notes is not, in fact, The Universe, but Mike Dooley, author of The Secret. Now, I've never read the book, and this isn't supposed to be some sort of preachy or self-help post. I just really enjoy getting the notes in my inbox each day. Sometimes they're totally not applicable to my life, but every so often, they hit home. I see them as electronic fortune cookies. (I'm sure you can get actual electronic fortune cookies e-mailed to you too, haha.)

My recent favorite notes:

Mandy, you know the way, you're strong enough, and you will prevail.
Otherwise, what would be the whole point?

—The Universe
Actually, Mandy, "prevail" is a gross understatement, but it sounded more couth than "rock the friggin' world."
Mandy, I can't even remember the last time I was this excited for you over all that you're on the verge of doing, being, and having.
Just sayin'.

—The Universe
Are they the same for everyone? Sure. Do the e-mails come with some advertising for Dooley's other projects? Yes. But I think it's important that everyone get a little obsessed. from time-to-time with a little positive affirmation.

  1. I signed up. Who can't use a little positivity every day? I'll let you know what a few of mine are, and we can compare! :D

  2. Aww, I love the idea of that!
