Do you love receiving snail mail? Like an actual fun piece of mail delivered to your mail box? We all get junk mail. That alone gets so annoying that I have moments that I wish all the mail would go away. Instead, I let that junk mail build up on my counter, before I do a deep purge. That I am guilty of! But, you know what gets opened up right away!? Any piece of mail that seems fun, personalized, and meaningful. This thought has gotten me to actually start writing greeting cards.
Greeting cards are an intentional act.
I have always loved making them, but I am leaning in to sending them more too. Connection to others matters. It breathes passion and fulfillment in us and our relationships. Yet, we often lose it from busyness, anxiety, responsibilities, and work. Can you relate?
One way to create a deeper connection with those you care about (especially those who live further from you) is to send greeting cards. It’s a powerful, meaningful way to say I was thinking of you and YOU Matter!
I’ve been on a mission to write 3-5 greeting cards every week this year. We need more happy mail. Through this new card writing habit, I’ve noticed a few things:
What a gift that we can use our time and words to encourage others!
It’s a crazy beautiful thing that it also builds into us!
New habits can be hard to start, so pausing to see progress and the good that is happening is so powerful. Would you like to join me in this mission to send more love and encouragement out? I’ve made a list of 26 prompts to get you started.
Pick one prompt to write to several people in a week or pick a different prompt per a day to use for different people. The way you use this list is up to you!

Don’t stress that this is another thing to do.
Just add it as an option instead of scrolling on social media or sending a text. This is intentional, meaningful, and investing into relationships that you care about.
I do love making my cards.
If you don’t love making your cards, you could pick some up in my store or so many other wonderful places. The actual card is fun and special to receive, but what really matters is what you write on the inside.
Let me encourage you to be intentional with your words and to build into others! We are all fragile and going through something. What a powerful way to show someone you care about that you see them and they matter.
