It could feel as though Moodnudges has gone a bit survey-ish over the past week or so.
Perhaps, therefore, it’s a good idea for us all to get back to basics today – to return to what I think (?) you probably expect from Moodnudges, which is the sense that someone gets you, understands what you’re going through from time to time, and is definitely, unequivocally, on the same side as you.
Life can be good, of course, but that doesn’t stop it being really tough at times.
You’ve shown huge courage and tenacity to come all this way, and I’m fully confident that you have it in you to continue showing that strength and determination.
Yup, even on those days when everything feels as though it’s turned to custard.
I also want you to know how much I appreciate your attention and willingness to participate.
The number of people who took part in the past few waves of research was both heartening and also slightly stunning.
And I also hope you realise just grateful I am that you’re reading this, and other, messages you receive from me.
I don’t in any way take this for granted.
My own in-box can feel totally overwhelming at times, so I know full well how tempting it can be to click on the unsubscribe link at the foot of messages you no longer wish to receive.
While it’s always sad to lose readers, our unsubscribe rate is actually terribly low.
Among nice feedback from so many people, Helen N. told me a couple of weeks ago that Moodnudges is “definitely a keeper,” which made me feel warm, and a bit proud.
All in all, therefore, thank you for allowing me to share a little bit of your life four times a week.
Thank you for looking after yourself, and (I’m pretty sure) spreading a little of what I hope is Moodnudges’ feel-good spirit to other people you come into contact with.
Thank you, too, for everything *you* do for others – who may not always be as good as they might be at expressing their own appreciation (which may not be their fault: not everyone knows how to do this).
Thank you. Let’s keep going, shall we?
