There’s a lot going on in our world right now, and it’s not hard for our outlook to sour into grumpiness, anger, or just plain ol’ pessimism. After all, we’re only human, and 2020 has been like a bull in the china shop of life.
But at the end of the day, we’re all in this thing called Life together. When we’re down in the dumps, we may find ourselves looking to our friends, neighbors, family—even strangers—for a dose of happiness or hope. Other times, it’s important to spread our own hope and joy to others. That’s what “illumy life,” as we call it, is all about: sharing hope, spreading love, projecting kindness.
So we created some simple, inspirational signs (and one very silly one) for the world. Share them on social media. Choose one that speaks to you, or share and print them all and put them in your yard, in your windows, in your car for everyone to see. They will surely lift the spirits of your fellow human—and who knows what a huge difference that could make in their day.
1. i am here for you.
Show you care about your community.
2. choose hope.
Make your optimism contagious.
3. love all people.
Spread the humanity around.
4. choose kindness.
Being nice makes everyone happy.
5. unity is key.
Remind people that we’re all in this together.
6. bonus sign: silly walk zone
Inspired by Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks, this sign is sure to bring frivolity and laughter to your neighbors and family.
