I’ve adopted this goal from Kaz_Dancing – thanks for the inspiration!
I’ve found that the last decade I have been very lazy with sending hand written letters or postcards – the enthusiasm about all the other ways of keeping in touch, such as with the help of internet and mobile phones has completely taken over.
But, as much as I enjoy getting an email, an ecard or a text message, there is something different with receiving a proper letter or a beautiful postcard in the mailbox. Or most exciting of all, a small parcel : )
I’ve been thinking of this way to reconnect with some friends and relatives that I haven’t had much contact with the last few years. It often feels a bit awkward to phone someone up that you haven’t been talking with for a long time, but sending a postcard or so seems much more doable.
I’m not planning to exchange a lot of postcards, since I think that would only make me feel stressed. So I am being realistic. I think maybe about one postcard/letter/parcel a month seems like a good thing to aim at.
I think this goal has the capacity to become one of my most rewarding ones since it might mean that I will reconnect with some important people and I will be able to surprise and be surprised :)
