Letter writing lets you be yourself. It gives you an outlet to express who you are. Choose a style, color, and font for your stationery that reflects you. Using this stationery will say more about you than plain old words ever could.
Practice makes perfect in all aspects of life. Letter writing is no different. The more you write the better you’ll be. If you’re still working on becoming a good writer, practice on your friends and family.
Keep in mind when writing letters that “it’s not what you say but how you say it.” Nothing could be more true when it comes to letter writing. As you write more you will develop a definitive written voice. You might actually find it easier to express yourself through your writing than through speech.
You’ve probably all been told about the importance of thank you notes. Birthday presents, graduation gifts, wedding presents, baby gifts are just a few situations that call for thank you notes. But have you ever considered sending a thank you note for the everyday things you’re grateful for? Try thanking someone for their friendship through the years, or a mentor for their support and encouragement. These unexpected thank- you’s are even more rewarding for you and the recipient than the standard thank you.
It’s always a good idea to treat people how you want to be treated. Imagine those rough patches where a little extra encouragement from your friends made all the difference. Do you know any one who’s going through a rough patch? Why note send them a note letting them know you’re thinking about them. You’d be surprised how much comfort, love and strength they’ll get from your small gesture.
