Writing a letter is just putting your thoughts onto paper.
You simply compose sentences and attach them together.
Sometimes the letters you write to someone are happy letters to share exciting news.
Sometimes the letters you write to someone are sad letters to express the sorrow in your heart.
Sometimes the letters you write to someone are just to say hello.
Sometimes the letters you write to someone are to say goodbye.
Whatever the letter may be about, the words come from somewhere deep down inside your heart.
You write the letter because you want to share something from within you with someone else.
Not that many people write letters anymore – we’ve become too dependent on texts and emails to express ourselves.
But what if we all sat down with a pen and piece of paper for 10 minutes without any distractions and wrote someone a letter.
After you wrote to your heart’s desire you will sign it.
Then you’ll seal the envelope.
We don’t make copies of letters; therefore, whatever you wrote in ink is there to stay and only one copy will exist.
That copy will only be available to the recipient of the letter.
Even the letter composer won’t have a copy of the letter.
That’s what’s so special about letters – once that envelope is sealed, the words on that piece of paper cannot be edited, re-read, or thrown into oblivion.
The letter will then be delivered and the recipient will be able to re-read the letter as many times as they want; after all, it was addressed to them!
I think the world needs to start writing more letters to each other.
I personally am a much better writer than a speaker.
It’s much easier to write down my emotion than to speak of it.
So I ask you today to write someone a letter.
Thank someone for something they did for you or tell someone how much they mean to you.
I promise you that you won’t regret it.
Consider the letter as a gateway into peace with the world around you and the knowing that you hopefully just brightened someone’s day through words.
