In the digital age, the art of the handwritten letter is drifting into obscurity.Is it true that things, like books and handwritten letters are now deemed as slow communication? Is there any way to fall back in love with them? I for one, never fell out of love with these types of things. To me, books and handwritten letters are novel items. It’s something about seeing someone’s handwriting and holding a piece of stationary that they once held.
Though it may be nostalgic, I still believe there always is room for the handwritten note in all types of communication. Think about it, they cost something, mean something, and have permanence in a way emails and text messages do not have. When it comes to handwritten notes they allow people into our lives to know how much they truly are appreciate. Is it possible for you to pause for 15 minutes and to put a pen to paper to use? Doing this will attempt to connect and sustain a relationship with anyone, and their gratitude will be immense.
Sure, the month of November reminds us to be thankful for what we have, but being thankful isn’t a motif that stays with us for the rest of the year. Personally, I believe that every day you should give thanks for one thing. This one thing can be small. Being thankful shouldn’t be a chore; please don’t view it like that. We are all lucky in our own ways and I am certain everyone has just one thing to be thankful for. Today, I challenge you to say thank you to someone or to recognize that one thing which you appreciate.
Today, I am thankful for the nights that turned into mornings. The friends who turned into family and all my dreams that turned into reality.
Remember: it’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy.
