Have you written anyone any letters?

When I was little I bemoaned to my sister Liza that no one ever wrote me letters. I mentioned it a few times, especially every time she got a letter when I did not. She then asked me something that changed my life:

“Nancy, have you written anyone any letters?”

After pondering it for a moment I was shocked by the answer. I’d never written anyone a letter, ever. That’s when she told me, “You have to write letters to receive them. I bet if you write a bunch of letters you’ll get some back.”

She was right. I wrote several letters to several people and got several responses. I continued to write and, from a select few, they continued to write too. I grew to really know and love these people and I just loved those letters! The few people that continued to write me regularly I not only came close to then, but we are still close today. They brighten my world.

All because I wrote some letters.

“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” ~Winnie the Pooh

You can’t just stay in your corner waiting for people to find you. Be the person you would want to have find you; then go find others like you.

It’ll change your life.
