Writ­ing it in a let­ter

Pick Me Up! Special - - Real Life -

Of course, many peo­ple would call let­ter writ­ing old-fash­ioned. But let’s be hon­est – when we come home to find an en­ve­lope with our name on it, we get a warm fuzzy feel­ing in­side. And no, we don’t mean your lat­est bank state­ment or elec­tric bill, but a bona fide hand­writ­ten let­ter from a loved one. There’s so much love in a let­ter – they’re sen­ti­men­tal, rare and ro­man­tic – some­thing phys­i­cal to hold on to. They show that a real ef­fort was made to reach out to you, and get­ting an ac­tual let­ter can of­ten make some­one’s day. But writ­ing a let­ter can also be ther­a­peu­tic. By sit­ting down and com­pos­ing a mes­sage to some­one, we al­low our­selves to take a break from the hec­tic world around us and fo­cus on the per­son we’re writ­ing to. These days, let­ters are rare, but there’s some­thing truly special about get­ting ac­tual mail, in­stead of just a ping in your in­box.
