638: Challenge Week: I Just Wanted to Let You Know... - Test 5 of Challenge Week
We never would want to think that we take anything for granted, let alone people. There are people in our lives that we care for deeply. We assume, through our actions, that they know we love them, yet we might often go days, months or even years without actually telling them.
As we go throughout our days we truly have no idea how much we impact the world. Even in a day when we are on top of the world, we really never know the scope of impact of who we are. You change the world for so many people, and accordingly they do the same for you.
Today is a powerful challenge that I am hoping many people will tackle. The challenge is to write a letter to someone you love and let them know how much they mean to you. Let them know how they have made your life fuller, better.
I am definitely not talking about an email or a text. I am talking about good old pen and paper. Go to the post office and get a stamp and mail it. Why am I so insistent that it be an actual letter? Mostly for impact. An email is impersonal, regardless of the words you express. It is still void of all your energy. The effort it takes to write a letter and send it says so much more. Think about it. When was the last time you got a letter that was handwritten? We open up the mailbox each day and are just barraged by advertisements and crappy fliers. How cool would it be to open up your mailbox and get a letter from a friend, someone you love?
Go make someone's day, accept today's challenge.
