Opportunities to write letters Spreading joy – reason enough to write a letter.
Nowadays, messages reach their recipients in just a few seconds: grab your smartphone, tablet or laptop, and in a couple of clicks and the push of a button, you’re done. But even in these times of digitization, there are still more than enough reasons to sit down with pen and paper, take some time, gather your thoughts, express your feelings and write a letter or a card. As a thank you for a long-standing friendship. As a holiday greeting. As congratulations on passing an exam. Let yourself be inspired!
11 occasions for writing
Did your sister brighten your weekend with her invitation to a barbecue or your colleague take the time for a long discussion? Say thank you with a handwritten card and let them know how happy it made you.
Children are always delighted to receive personal mail. The excitement they feel when they read their own name on a letter or card is unique. Wish your grandchild a lovely holiday in a letter, or congratulate your niece on her good marks in her maths exam with a card.
Sitting down, taking time, reflecting, gathering your thoughts, writing a letter – these things are calming and relaxing. “Letters, like any other pleasure, are something you should allow yourself after work,” said Swiss poet and author Gottfried Keller.
Whenever and for whatever reason you write to someone dear to you: your mail will be well received. Guaranteed.
