Please, don’t forget your Thank You s….
In a generation where wishing your family and friends ‘happy birthday’ via Facebook and Twitter is the norm, sending a thank you note for something may seem a little old school and may even seem like a waste of time. Yet this act of appreciation goes a long way. Whether it’s thanking someone for a gift you received, for a visit someone paid you, for hosting you and showing you hospitality, or even thanking someone because they did something kind for you, this is an action you can take in appreciation of theirs…
Make it personal and authentic. A hand written note will naturally give it that flair.
Put some time and thought into it. Be expressive, but don’t ramble on.
Even if you’re somewhat behind in sending your note, do it anyway, but always try to send your note as soon as possible.
If you don’t have the address of who you’re sending it to, get it. Then send your note snail mail. It’s always fun when you receive a personal letter in the mail… Very few people do this anymore, and it will be a lovely surprise!
