I’ve been sitting on this idea for a while now, and it seemed that there was no better place to talk about this than on my own little part of the internet. (Me bringing in the cliches, sorry!)
What I’m about to say next though, you might not expect. I’m looking for Pen pals. I know that sending letters back and forth might not be everyone’s piece of cake, as yes, it is a longer process and does take some more effort, but I think that’s the beauty in it. We, as a society, are so used to instant gratification that we no longer see the true value of what we receive. I’m looking for some like minded people here- maybe three of you?
I’m honestly really excited about this because I love getting to know about different people and making as real a connection as possible. I think this is a really special opportunity as you never know who you’ll find, and it’s like your world expands a little as you learn more and more about others who are so different, yet similar to you. There’s so many benefits, and I feel that the older way of doing things, sending letters, really does come with many benefits. Electronic communication is so impersonal and plain fast moving. You don’t know who your real friends are.
I’ve had email buddies before, one who I still talk to sometimes, but not regularly. It’s a good experience- I know so much about this person and I consider them a friend, but I’m looking for something different. This offer is open to anyone who’s interested. You can leave a comment down below, and I’ll get back to you. I’d love to talk to a bunch of you , but unfortunately I’m not looking to be sending a ton of letters all the time, so I’m sticking with a maximum of three people, as stated above. If I choose you as one of my Pen Pals, I’ll be sure to email or drop you a comment to tell you. If you’re not chosen, please remember that it’s nothing personal, and I’d still love to chat!
Happy Friday, beautiful people!
