Do you remember your school days when you’d write a love letter to the person in your class you had a crush on? I remember scribbling a note and waiting nervously for a reply? I certainly think back to my primary school days with fond memories of being young and excited at the little things. Why is it then with modern technology and being a ‘grown up” have things changed so much? So should we should revive the long-lost art of writing love letters?
The Old Fashioned Way
Handwritten love letters offer a touch of warmth that can’t be provided by smartphones, emails and social media messages. Who will never delight in little surprises like receiving a letter as a way of saying you care?
Take the time to pick up a pen, write your thoughts, and pop it in the postbox or better still, hide it so they can find it. Imagine their joy in finding it, desperately trying to open the envelope and see who it’s from!
Make Someones Day
Remember, it isn’t only the recipient of the letter is the winner here. As the writer, it makes you feel good knowing that you are going out of your way, ‘surprising’ them and showing that you are willing to go a different pathway to make them happy. Writing a letter is therapeutic because it makes you relax and feel good.
It doesn’t just have to be love letter…Even a Get-Well-Soon letter, a Best Wishes letter or Just to Say note is enough to create that glow in the heart. You don’t need to wait for them to write to you – write it, and they’ll more tan likely be happy to reply.
SAY IT WITH PAPER!
