Photos to Enjoy and Share
I write a lot of e-mails. I receive a lot of e-mails. I love to take photos, and I have a massive collection accumulated over the years. Nothing makes my day more than to come home, get the mail, and find a card or letter that someone has hand written to me. They took time to think about me, to think of a message, and to put that message on paper, put a stamp on it, and send it to me. That act of love and kindness is so uplifting. It reminds me that I matter.
I'd like to stay that writing cards to loved ones and friends makes my day. When I sit down to write, it doesn't. I have anxiety over what to write: what if I make a mistake -- cross out or start over? What if I run out of space? What if I run out of things to say? What’s the right thing to say? You know what – these questions are minuscule and easily surmountable when compared to the goodness that you will send by putting your message, any message (well almost any), in an envelope and mailing it.
My answer to the procrastination and anxiety -- just do it. Pour a cup of coffee, glass of iced tea or a glass of wine, sit down at the dining room table, pull out your cards, and start writing! Turn the TV off -- it is too much of a distraction. Turn your cell phone over, and turn on some good music. Start writing. You will never regret it, and you will be very happy for the kindness and good feelings you have created for others.
I'm an avid photographer who loves to capture the beauty, grandeur, and fun of the people, cultures, scenery and architecture around us. I love to share my photos and encourage people to share by sending hand written notes to loved ones and friends.
