Papered Thoughts by True Story

I was going to pre-fix this post with a rambling mess of words about how I am not a front of camera girl, how I feel awkward and nerdish most days, how I don't like the sound of my own voice, how I feel uncomfortable talking about myself for long periods of time (let alone on video!)
Instead I will tell you this, this was hands down, one of the most incredible experiences of my life. to be able to tell my story was one thing, but to receive a video that was so beautifully edited and put together was another thing all together.
Hai you are incredible and "thankyou" will never feel like enough.


  1. Great interview. I wish the music wasn't so loud though because it takes away from you.

  2. Amazing video! And you look amazing Rin!

  3. Beautiful interview! I like Your voice and the way you talk, also using Your hands :-) It`s such an important topic you talk about and share With us in this video. I really wish to send you a letter, do you still do swaps? :-)

  4. Dearest Rin,
    I've watched this a few times now and every single time I have the biggest smile on my face and in my heart. I feel so privileged to not only be one of your writing buddies, but to watch this and get to know you even more. You are a warm yellow light in an often dark and lonely world and your kindness is immeasurably beautiful.
    Thank you for simply being you! Wonderful, magical, truly inspiring, gorgeous YOU!
    Happiest birthday and all the days to come, sweetheart.

  5. Just such a wonderful job you did with this....your kindness shines through....thank you!

  6. This is so wonderful, Rin! Spread the love!! It's also really cool to be able to see an Instagram pal/pen pal in live action ;-) Congrats! (@papertraildiary)

  7. This is so lovely and inspiring - I am sharing with my readers on Facebook and Twitter!
    Sent you a short note a while ago about doing a mini interview with you on my blog - hope you will consider and would love to share the video there as well!

    All the best,
    Alison (from Canada)

  8. LOVED the video! Especially the part about your grandma's love letters. Those must be amazing to have gone through. Just curious, what's on the paint chips?

  9. So lovely dear Rin! Keep sharing your love, light & those beautiful sparkling eyes with the world. You are right, we all need more of that. & confetti too! All bests, Julia P., KY, USA

  10. I don't know how I am just now seeing this but its great to be able to hear your voice! Such a cute accent. You're a lovely person, inside and out. :)

  11. Hi there,
    I found your pinterest site today and might just have spammed your notification-thingy because I love pretty much everything you share on there. Then I saw this video: I am so awed at what a positive person you are and I love your thoughts. I absolutely agree with the "kind note in the street"-thing. It can totally change your day around. I'm so glad I found your pinterest and I just wish I could have said and sent that to by letter.

    Have the happiest of days and enjoy the weekend,

  12. How beautiful. You can see and feel the passion you have in making people smile by sending your letters and you sound so kind. I'd love to stumble over letters from one of my family members to another that contained oodles of love, having your Grandparents letters is so romantic. I'd love to be your pen friend, if you have space and want a UK friend then give me a whistle. x


Thankyou For Spreading the Love! Keep Writing.
Peace & Love xo
