Make More Happy: Snail Mail Quick Tip

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:

Quote Postcard.

“I want the life, sedateness and leisure of the little town, and its less competitive life leave me more time and space to ponder on problems that seem never to have answers.”

Love it, right? Now, here’s the message:

"Hope. It's the only thing stronger than fear..." From the Hunger Games Movie

“Hope. It’s the only thing stronger than fear…” From the Hunger Games Movie

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:

“It Was Never Random”

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.

Do you need help finding quotes?  You’ll find more than you need at any of the sites below:

Now, let’s go make some happy!
