I’ve never really been one for sending handwritten cards. Call it unthoughtful or lazy but it’s just not something I’ve been into. Especially not when there’s the easy option of text messages, emails and ecards which serve as excellent and quick substitutes.
But now, all that is starting to change. A few months back when the love of my life was taken too soon, I was lucky to have some incredibly loving and kind people around me, who helped through the darkest days. The very least I could do, was say thank you and let them know how grateful I was for their love and kindness. And what better way than with a surprise and thoughtful thank you card in the post.
Kindness always matters. It feels just as good to be kind as it does to receive kindness from others.
When you receive a nice card, there is no denying how good it feels. Knowing that someone took the time to pick a card and then share how they feel and write a special message, just for you. And you know what? We could all do with a little more good and positivity in our lives.
I’ve learnt to never underestimate how powerful and healing it can be to know how someone else feels about you. It can be such a big help, more than you could know.
When was the last time you wrote a card? Is there someone you want to send a special message to? It’s wonderful to think nice things about a loved one but it’s even better – for both of you – to let them know.
What kind acts do you share with those you love?
