Writing Has Power

In a busy world, we can get caught up in ourselves and the things we absolutely must accomplish each day. It’s easy to forget to acknowledge the important people in our lives. It’s for precisely this reason that receiving a note of thanks or appreciation is so very meaningful. People simply don’t receive these spontaneous offerings on a regular basis. That’s why setting aside the time and making the effort to write such a message is so powerful, for both you and the receiver.

Sharing Gratitude Strengthens Bonds

A personal note or message goes far to show you care. Words have meaning, but it’s often said that actions speak louder. The recipient of your note will be surprised to receive it. A positive surprise almost always improves someone’s day and mood. This can be especially impactful if you intentionally send your message to someone you know is going through a rough patch. Regardless, this small gesture will go far to strengthen existing bonds because it’s such a customized act. When people feel a personal attachment, they tend to experience feelings of closeness and meaning. Your written acknowledgment of their importance in your life will surely affect your relationship in a positive way.

Ideas to Get You Started

Your words of gratitude don’t have to be in hand-written form, though it truly is a nice touch that’s a rarity these days. You can send electronic correspondence if you prefer. Your message doesn’t have to be long because I think you will find that any written words of appreciation will be quite meaningful to the reciever.

Here are some examples:

  • Drop a post-it note of love in your child’s lunchbox
  • Slip a little love letter into your significant other’s coat pocket
  • Send your colleague an email thanking them for their assistance
  • Mail your best friend a funny card with a personal note of appreciation just because
  • Text a buddy a note of support on a difficult day
  • Give your doctor or other professional a written message of thanks for their service
  • Write a letter to a loved one expressing your indebtedness

This is just a shortlist to spark your own creativity. People from your past, older relatives, neighbors, kids’ teachers, and other meaningful people in your life should be considered as recipients of your words of gratitude. If possible, try to take on this practice daily, at least for a while. You’ll see the momentum can lead to some pretty amazing results.
