International Women's Day
Is there a friend who’s been on your mind or that you keep saying you'll contact when...you have more time... or... when things slow down or … [insert all the excuses here].
Believe me, I can completely relate. Just because I started Pretty by Post doesn’t mean that I send out cards every single day. I have the same good intentions of sending cards & spreading love, but I also make excuses & procrastinate - I’ll send that person a card tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes & I put it off again because I still have a week until her birthday. Until it’s a day before her birthday & then I say, welllll...I’m already late so what will one more day matter?
So today, I’m here to tell you that there’s no room for perfectionism, excuses or procrastination when it comes to telling someone you love them. BECAUSE it’s NEVER too late to send a card
And I’m here to make it easy for you.
I want YOU to jot 3 - 5 sentences down on one of your favorite cards. Or if that’s too stressful then grab a piece of paper. It doesn’t matter. Whatever you have will do.
Write to one person in your life.
Just ONE person.
It can be as simple as writing ONE sentence that says I’m thinking of you & I miss you.
Seal it. Stamp it. Send it.
And don’t forget to share your cards/notes with me on IG by tagging @prettybypost & make sure to use the hashtags #fierceloyalty and #sendcardsspreadlove so I can find you!
