I believe that everyone needs something to help keep them motivated and moving forward daily.
My boyfriend is such a huge help to me when I get over-obsessed with my routines. He says that I am so busy frantically working that I forget to stop every once in a while and enjoy the little things. I know he’s right, but I’m sure everyone knows what it feels like to try and relax when there is so much to do.
Thanks to my crazy schedule, my boyfriend has devised a plan of attack to help me take a step back sometimes. It only started a few weeks ago, but he has been visiting me at work several times a week. Not only that, but he brings me coffee when he visits! He is so thoughtful; he puts Penless heart stickers on the cups so that I get a video with my coffee.
The videos I get from him always help to brighten my day. Sometimes the videos are motivational and sometimes they are kind words to get me through the day. Sometimes he uses the videos to tell me little surprises, like if he wants to take me out to dinner that night.
These small acts of affection have really changed the way I think about work. I go to work now excited to see what surprises the day might hold. Will he visit me today? It’s always a guessing game. When he does visit me, the videos I receive leave me feeling empowered and ready to take on the day. I also get yummy coffee, so I can have the energy to power through my work. I think this is what his intention was, but I’m not sure if he realizes how big of a difference his little gestures make.
I’m so glad that there is an app like Penless that has enabled us to create moments like these. There are so many creative possibilities that await when using Penless. I look forward to seeing what new products and designs they come out with. So far, I am a huge fan of the stickers. Not only because my boyfriend can use them when he brings me coffee, but because they can be used on anything. They are so versatile and come in so many different designs; there are endless possibilities for their use.
