My Coach is a huge advocate of writing notes. You can write them to your children, spouse, lover, family, neighbor, friends, your business associates and clients. The amazing part of a handwritten note is that, it is always read. Most times, it is valued so much, that it is kept. Receiving notes, is also, amazing. Having received them from all of the above suggestions, I can say that it is a wonderful way to acknowledge someone in your life.
A handwritten note, only takes minutes. You don't have to write much, to make it worthy. Short and sweet works, just fine. It can be to acknowledge a meeting, a special day, a thank you, a welcome or just simply, how are you, today. It is very inexpensive, yet holds so much value. It takes your time, which is the special gift that you are taking, to give to someone.
Hoping that you experience the value of a handwritten note. Whether you are the sender or the receiver, you will feel much better, after writing and/or reading your note. My Coaching Company, provides me with lovely notes, every month. The inside is blank, but, the cover always has a good phrase to remember. This note card says, The Years Teach Much Which the Days Never Know, by Ralph Waldo Emerson. How very true this is. With every year that passes, this makes more sense to me.
Here are a few sample ideas of what to write:
It was good to see you, today!
I appreciate your input.
Thank you for a lovely day!
Loved the outing in the kayak!
Hope you are well.
Looking forward to seeing you, soon.
Talking with you, made my day.
Love your ideas, thank you.
Let's catch up, soon.
I am proud of you!
Top O'the Mornin to ya!
You get the idea. Short one line statements that show your appreciation and care for the recipient of the note. Most times, you will receive one back:) Special touches to enlighten your day. I will share with you that your children will amaze you with their responses.
