Towards the bottom of my list is “write – letters.” So when I read about the website moreloveletters.com, I signed up for their email updates right away. Their premise is that the world needs more love letters – handwritten letters written to encourage or lift up people who need them. They collect the handwritten missives and then mail bundles of letters to new college students, people who give and give to others and then find themselves to be in need of support or anyone who is nominated to be a recipient of a bundle.
I’m planning to participate by simply writing brief and uplifting notes including favorite quotes. I’m not too artsy so I won’t be getting out the glitter guns or making paper origami to mail to a lucky recipient, but I love getting personal mail so I figure the beauty of the writing won’t matter.
My first quote, a favorite today, is from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
What would you include in an uplifting handwritten love letter to a stranger?
