Hi, I’m new to Softi, I received my pebble today and even though I don’t know why I was sent it or the story behind my pebble I actually love it, today was starting out to be a really bad day then it arrived and made me smile and took my mind of things for a while and maybe my day won’t feel as bad. If you could explain the story/idea behind the pebbles I would really appreciate it. Thank you for listening x
I had the exact same reaction
I was not sure what the purpose or intent of the pebble was.
I laughed so hard because was not expecting it.
That’s when someone gave me the idea to repurpose it into a necklace.
She said that when you don’t know the purpose of something, it just means it’s a blank canvas and that gives you the opportunity to create the purpose.
She said that because it brought on laughter; if I wear it around my neck it will serve as a personal reminder of just that. Laughter. Spontaneous laughter to be precise. And I found that to be more than enough of a reason for having it
Regarding the story behind the pebbles, I actually just received a mailer from Sofi today with a roundup of some important articles; one of which was in part an explanation of the origin of these pebbles. I will link it below.
And I have to say, knowing that someone picked this up to give to me is special in a very subtle way. An effort was made and was received with appreciation and joy as a result. Maybe this was exactly the purpose as the exact reason is yet unknown to me.
That has blown me away but the pebble did what it was supposed to do and that was to make me happy and that no matter how bad things are I’m still allowed to smile, I will be making a necklace out if it too as it will always be a reminder of today and that there are wonderful people out there so the world isn’t that bad
Happy that such a simple story brought so much meaning to people!
I received the necklace string today, now I just need the silver clamp which I will get over the weekend hopefully, but will definitely share the pic once it’s done!
