MY NEXT BIG IDEA: 365 Letters

I have muddled over this for a while.  I miss writing letters.  I miss receiving letters.  There is something special and wonderful about some pretty stationery or a bright postcard in the mailbox.  It balances out the notes from our mailman/cousin saying our mail has been stolen and left all over the neighborhood.  Writing letters, however, is really a lost art.  We email, we text – we just don’t write letters anymore.

I cleaned up my home office a little, and I realized I have enough stationery to write my congressmen, all of them, every day all year.  Fortunately, I don’t want to write to them, I want to write to people I like. 

I have had this idea that if you wrote a letter to someone every day, that your life would be magically better.  I don’t know how, but I keep thinking I should try it and see.  I have come up with all kinds of rules I should follow over the years, and while I am great at other people’s rules, I don’t follow my own rules very well at all.  So to heck with the rules. 

I aim to use up my stationery.  I will write letters.  If they are private, I will spare you the details, but I will post who I sent to and maybe why for each day. 

Let’s just see where I end up.  I will start posting after my 29 days are up, so stay tuned.

    Sounds challenging! I really hope I get a letter because I am one of the people you like!! And in return, I will write you a letter back because as nice as it feels to give it feels great to get back because you know that people appreciate your giving. By the way, if you didnt know… we have a blog to keep updates on the twins! Check it out if you havent…http://sgarlatascrapbook.blogspot.com/sometimes it take awhile between updates, but I am sure you have experienced that! keep up the good work!!

    Bitter. But prepared to overcome. Just found another blog (or twenty) that are already doing this – but I wanted to set the record straight. I so did not know. See? I stall on my ideas and bam. A day late. One dollar? Short.Wrote 3 letters today anyway.
