Patti Digh has done it again- she came up with a great idea and something that I WANT to do and have not started yet.
She has started to send a "Thank You" card a day and intends to do so for life.
I love this idea as I buy THANK YOU cards and stamps for THANK YOU cards and pens for THANK YOU cards and I don't write them. Sometimes I want to write them for silly little things or big things or just because. Why don't I do it? I can say because I'm busy, because I'm tired, because I procrastinate, because I didn't have the right pen or the right card. What is the real reason?
Sometimes, when I want to do it, I end up going to the scary place in my head where I imagine the other person's reaction and I scare myself off. Sometimes, I carry them around for days and days and then the impulse just goes away. Sometimes, I don't know what I would say, even though I just really want to say THANK YOU, so I don't write it.
Not as any excuse, but I am planning to start after my show on Aug. 27 (I think that's the date). I have the pens. I have the cards. I have the will. I have the website (go here first then follow the links) where I know I can find inspiration and support. I may not manage to do it every day for the rest of my life, but I need to do this. It is important. I can feel it in my stomach.
