Click the graphic above for a quick tour of the four April 2021 letter requests at moreloveletters.com.
It’s interesting…sometimes I dive right into these letters and other times I need the requests’ words and details to seep in. This has been a ‘let seep in’ month.
I do make a point of finishing letters for out-of-country requests first. And over time, I’ve wended my way through the USPS website to figure out the required postage and I have those stamps at the ready.
In James Clear’s words (Atomic Habits)…
“If you want to maximize your odds of success, then you need to operate in an environment that accelerates your results rather than hinders them.”
I try to omit the recipient’s name in these posts, even though the More Love Letters website includes them in the Letter Requests section–thus the amateurish patches of approximated color.
Hoping the words count for something.
With the pandemic cutting into volunteer opportunities, I guess this little project is one way to give back. And it’s a good Sunday afternoon thing to do, followed up by popcorn and a mystery. Or a break from the ‘grueling’ schedule I keep…
I keep dawdling on completing an online ‘goodwill words’ course to match the one I conducted last fall, as it always seems more important to just get the letters and notes out in the mail.
Anyway, thanks for visiting. I always appreciate the folks who press the ‘Like’ button to let me know the post arrived safely.
One of the challenges I face is self-imposed.
“Where the heck did I put that first draft of my letter?”
Need I say more?
Still more to add.
Just trying to keep the momentum.
Posting these helps make the project more ‘real’.
Just came across another writing-to-help-others site:
And in the meantime, here is a nice piece entitled: 7 WAYS TO SUPPORT OTHERS DURING TOUGH TIMES
Plenty more to post.
The project has also spent a bit more time at Letters to Strangers, whose guidelines discourage online images outside of the site itself. (At least, that’s how I’m interpreting it.)
Am way behind on adding updates to my ‘goodwill words’ project. Here is today’s contribution. (It’s one thing to write the notes and letters. Posting them is a whole other ballgame. 🤔)
Thanks for visiting.
It’s as if I’m getting to know the recipients.
In reality, though, I don’t know where these are sent.
But I’ve always trusted Love for Our Elders to find those deserving people.
And its Instagram pages continue to encourage me.
