Soft words is a submissions based project on positivity.
On March 24, 2020, I learned that a family member of mine was hospitalized for COVID-19. He, like many hardworking individuals, is a service worker; meaning that he had shown up to work every day to provide for himself and his family. Learning the news that he was ill was difficult and uncertain. And yet, I found myself remembering a happy summer spent with them many years ago.
On March 28, 2020, I made this site. While there are many hard things happening around us, I also know the world to be a soft place. I hope to create an online space where we can submit and read words of positivity together. Submissions will be displayed chronologically, and because I’m no webmaster, I’m really hoping that this site doesn’t break. I’ll let you know when we get to that point.
If you want to join me in creating this project, I welcome all submissions. Sending love. ♡
