Sometimes, people shy away from sending happy mail to others because they don’t know what to write. If you’re one of those people who breaks out in a sweat at even the suggestion of writing a sentence or two, there is indeed a way to put a smile on someone’s face without the anxiety. It is so simple. So easy. You’ll kick yourself for not realizing you could have been doing this all along.
What am I talking about? Sending quotes through the postal system! Inspirational. Motivational. Scriptural. Humorous. Snarky. Political. Historical. Woman-centered. Bookish.
A postcard or a notecard with a quote communicates that you’re thinking of someone just as effectively as a letter or note. Seriously. Don’t believe me? Here’s a simple postcard:
Love it, right? Now, here’s the message:
Nothing fancy. Not even a greeting on this one, but don’t you love it even more?
Here’s the inside of a favorite notecard I received earlier this year:
This notecard carries major sunshine because, even though the quote selection seems random, the person took what she knew about me and found short quotes I’d like.
You see? It’s pretty easy. Now, it’s your turn. Get a postcard–any postcard–find a quote, write it on the postcard, and send it on its way. Don’t have a postcard? Try a notecard or even a piece of card stock. Easy-peasy. Stickers, washi tape, and doodles are optional.
It’s a win-win. Your mood will be elevated during the time you spend selecting quotes and writing them on postcards and you’ll make someone else’s day a bit brighter.
