Bright Blessings

In the Earth-based Spirituality and Alternative Spirituality community, there is a beautiful gesture we make towards one another, as a salutation: Bright Blessings or B.B., with or without an exclamation point.




Saying Bright Blessings lets the recipient know what path of spirituality you follow. Writing it as a salutation can brighten any recipient's day regardless of spiritual path,be it in a text, email or handwritten letter.

What could be better or more brightening to the spirit than to receive such a warm and sunny blessing from the heart?




I admit, I'm guilty of using an exclamation point after wishing someone Bright Blessings. Now I understand it is most definitely overkill. Once again, saying something from the heart, sending good will, means no exclamation point required.



Notes on my Theme:
This post is written for the 2015 A to Z Challenge. During this challenge, participating bloggers post once a day, in alphabetical order. This is done 6 days per week. Sundays are off. My theme presents words that are exciting. These words serve as thematic motifs in my writing. My theme also revolves around exclamation points. The words I've chosen can replace the dreaded exclamation point, which writers are urged to avoid.
