So, how exactly does the Bnote work? 

Good question. 

The main intent of the Bnote is to share the message, YOU ARE ENOUGH.

 

The way it works:

Each Bnote, marked with a unique number, can be given to someone you know personally or a complete stranger. The card is designed to encourage and uplift the receiver. Our hope is the receiver will be inspired to share the message by passing on the SAME card to give to someone new. The unique number will allow the Bnote family to track the progress of encouragement. We want to hear any and all experiences from both givers and receivers. 

 

Here are some examples of Bnote stories that have already come in. 

Bnote #191 was left at The Center for a medical assistant who who went above and beyond

Bnote #601 was shared with a woman who while doing her job, without directly telling me; spoke the words 'you are being the best mom you can be'

Bnote #131 was placed in the box of a school counselor who had a tough week last week. Spreading the love, and reminding those in our community that they are ENOUGH

We can't wait to see where these Bnotes end up next!

This is where the Bnote family wants to go:

We believe there is more support needed in our community for parents of struggling teens and for the young men and women who are striving to create a fulfilling life. We desire to fill a gap and need your help in determining how best to do that. Please email us at hello@thebnote.org and offer your specific and constructive thoughts. Dream a little. What would we create if we could not fail? Or better yet, what would we risk creating in our community even if we knew we could fail? 

 

Wow. What a cool concept. How do I get some Bnotes and start spreading the message?

Simply send us a message at hello@thebnote.org leaving your address and we will send you some Bnotes. Please visit this website, Facebook or hashtag your stories at #thebnote on Instagram. We can't wait to see this message spread across the world!

The Bnote was born

So to begin this work we are starting with the Bnote.  Beau in our home was referred fondly by the nickname “B “or “B-man” and he loved music.  Thus, the Bnote was created. On the back it says, you are enough.

All of us here can relate to the words we speak to ourselves about being enough.

Am I smart enough?

Am I pretty enough?

Am I strong enough?

Am I creative enough?

Am I good enough?

Consider the enough question you ask yourself.

The answer to that is of course…you are enough. God tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Right now at this moment you are enough. Start there and begin to grow.  Start there and begin to contribute.  Start there and begin to share your heart.

So how does the Bnote work?

Today, as you leave take a Bnote. Attached is a gift card.

Use the card to bless others in whatever way moves you.  Be sure to leave the Bnote card with the gift.

Additional Bnotes are available. Take as many as you would like to find your own way of blessing others.

The Bnote has a website, Facebook and Instagram account that enables the giver or receiver to share your Bnote stories with the hope that no card has only one story.

So we leave you with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt, shared in the book Daring Greatly by Brene Brown:

It is not the critic who counts; not the many who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

Beau only needed to spend a short time with anyone to make a lasting impact we offer you the opportunity to do the same.
