There is nothing like getting an email from the recipient of a mission and posting it along with the actual mission itself. It’s as if the universe aligns and everything good and beautiful connects all at once. I love that.
Today’s mission is no different.
Behold the power of words, everyone. *sigh* Oh, how I love them so. And this mission proves that you don’t need to spend a dime to make a difference in someone’s day.

Affiliated Agent M2
Affiliated Agent M2’s Work (location top secret!!!) Roselle, IL; Stratford Square Mall area, Bloomingdale, IL; Trinity Care Center, Roselle, IL; and TBD!
throughout each day
Greeting Secret Agent L! This is Secret Agent M2, reporting on the status of my first mission. After discovering your website, I was immediately inspired. I didn’t want to wait until I had time to go to the store or put ribbons on things. Instead, during my lunch break at work, I pulled out some blank note cards and proceeded to write some inspirational quotes on them. I then attached my Affiliated Agent card to the envelopes and hid them in my bag.
On my way out of work, I looked around (probably somewhat suspiciously) for passersby… finding myself alone a left a card on the vehicle next to mine and quickly drove away (again, probably suspiciously). That evening, I was passing by a mall and stopped to leave a card on a random car in a parking lot.
The next day, I left a special card on a car that I regularly see in a parking lot near my work. The car’s license plate is a moniker of “Disney”… so I wrote some inspirational Walt Disney quotes on the card and left it on the windshield… I then left another one on a van near it. I still have one card in my bag, which will no doubt be left somewhere soon…
I am working on putting together something more elaborate for my next mission… but couldn’t wait to spread some kindness right away!
Well, I’m glad you completed your mission right away, because it touched someone’s life! In fact, the recipient wrote to me to let me know! Here’s what the email said:
I was coming out from work when I saw a pink card sitting on my dashboard. I went to grab it and written on it was, “This is for you,yes you!!” When I open it there was a flower card and inside the card were two quotes written.
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive…and then go and do that..Because what the world needs is people who are alive.”
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched…they must be felt with the heart.”
That card brought a huge smile to my face to know that there are people in this world who do kind acts such as this. I wanted to just say thank you for reminding me how special I am in this world. I wrote both of the quotes on my mirror so everyday when I wake up I am reminded that my life matters.
