The Five-Minute Meaningful Gesture

This week is Write a Letter of Appreciation Week.  I love this concept for three reasons:

  1. If you’re not already telling friends and family you appreciate them, make a start and see how much pleasure this brings to you, as well as them.
  2. Many of my clients are like me: we can’t resist buying cute thank you cards!  But then they just sit in a dark and lonely drawer.  Where’s the good in that?
  3. A note like this literally takes 5 minutes to write.  That makes it a great way to use spare time, while you’re waiting for something else to happen.

Why not keep a couple of notes, with stamps, in your car or purse? And start using your little fragments of time to let someone know you’re thinking of them.

  1. This is a lovely idea… we rely so much on email these days that to receive a card in the mail is always a delight. Though emails of appreciation are also appreciated! :)

  2. We say Thank You every Thursday on The Buzz! And we still have many more to thank…

  4. What a lovely reminder.

    And what a great idea, to keep the notes in a purse or the car!

    I have tons of cute cards, but never any stamps! Must get stamps.

    My friend, Vivien, frequently sends me a card to say how much she enjoyed our lunch or day out together. I used to think it was …quaint…but I’ve come to really enjoy her cards. It reminds me to be very conscientious about my Thank You notes as well, though mine are more usually for specific gifts.
