An easy way to make someone's day

Posted by Dan Miller, REALTOR on Friday, November 12th, 2021 at 9:04am.

Technology makes it so easy to connect with friends and family. But there’s something really special about receiving a handwritten note. When we receive a personal note, we feel supported, appreciated, and cared for. The words mean more to us when someone takes time to put pen to paper and share their good wishes with us.

Try a 30-day personal note challenge.

If receiving a handwritten note is something you really appreciate, then why not get in the habit of sending personal notes yourself? For the next month, try this daily challenge: Send one personal note each day to a friend or a loved one. Be genuine and generous with your words. Then take time to notice how this habit impacts you and your relationships. If you immerse yourself in this routine, don’t be surprised when you begin noticing positive changes in your mindset, in your relationships, and even in your career, too.

How to get started with hand-written notes

Following your friends' lives on social media is a great way to get started with your note-writing routine. For example, if you notice on Facebook that one friend just lost a loved one and another friend just got engaged, then write each friend a thoughtful note. Your friends will appreciate your support, and you’ll appreciate how writing each note makes you feel.

By extending herself to others in genuine and thoughtful ways, Chris has been creating goodwill and enriching the lives of others throughout her whole career.

So, who do you know in your life that would love to receive a note of encouragement, support, or gratitude? Taking time out to write a personal note is an easy way to make their day, and brighten your day, too.
