I love to do lots of creative things, but it feels like the only thing that I’m really really good at is writing. It’s the only thing that flows naturally and mostly comes easy. Words are so important. They can make or break someone’s day. They seem simple, but nothing is so powerful as a carefully articulated group of heartfelt thoughts translated into prose. That’s one of the reasons that I love More Love Letters.
Hannah found herself in a new city she thought would unlock her dreams. When it didn’t happen, she found herself in the darkness of depression. She turned to writing. I know that truth oh so well. Writing has given me solace and peace in times of trial and turbulence. Hannah soon found comfort in ripping out the pages of her journal to leave for others, all while imagining that her words, her love letters would help someone in their journey. Thus began the More Love Letters movement.
Hannah and her team now collect nominations for love letter bundles, encourage people to write words of encouragement through a physical love letter, and mail it. Her team receives, vets, and passes these bundles of letters on to the recipient. It’s beautiful and I’m thrilled to participate.
I just mailed off my latest bundle of letters just before the deadline might I add. I wanted to share this with you so you might be encouraged to write some love letters of your own. By all means, I hope that you’ll join me in Hannah’s movement, but if nothing else, I hope you’ll be encouraged to just write one for someone you know. I’m sure there are many people in your life who could use your beautiful words of affirmation in the form of a hand-written letter. It’s such an amazing way to show love in a tangible and thoughtful way.
