Three People to Write a Letter to Today


Valentine’s Day always has us thinking about loved ones and the people that matter most in our lives. So after you’ve finished sending messages to your parents, significant others, and close friends, here are three people you should also write a letter to today.

  1. A teacher from your past that made a big impact on you. Whether they helped you figure out what you want to do in life or helped you get through a tough time, it’ll make their day to get a quick note from you thanking them.

  2. A childhood friend you haven't talked to in a while. It’s the perfect time to reach back out to a friend from you past and catch back up. Plus a written letter will mean so much more to them than just a quick Facebook message.

  3. An extended family member you may not see very often. It’s so easy to forget about extended family when the holidays are over, but maintaining family relationships is super valuable. So send a hello to an aunt or an uncle and let them know you’re thinking about them.

So while you’re enjoying some Valentine’s Day chocolate or just hoping the day will pass quickly, take some time today to write three people you wouldn’t normally consider.
