This year FLEW by, didn’t it? We are already in the last two months of 2021, the best months in my opinion with all the holidays coming up. A period of time where everyone is generally more thankful, happy and giving (despite all the exams coming up if you’re in school like I am). It’s the period of time we reconnect with our loved ones; friends and family that mean so much to us.
It goes without saying that I love card writing and giving cards to those around me to commemorate all the monumental moments of life and also the small minute details and relationships worth noting and celebrating with each other. We have all struggled with some aspect relating to the world opening back up this year, started and ended things, trudged onwards despite setbacks and more. Throughout all those, we each have a group that sets us up for success to combat what the universe wants to send our way.
It has always been a tradition of mine to send cards during the holiday season to those around me. In part to thank each of the individuals in my life for their support, but also to recognize their accomplishments through the year. Sending cards has always been so therapeutic and a great source for me to connect with my people far and near. Sending or receiving handwritten cards in this digital world we live in is so special! If you’re thinking of a way to connect with those around you this year and set up a new holiday tradition, send a Hallmark card! There’s a card for everyone in your circle to relate to: the animal lover, the sarcastic one, the fashion icon, the food fanatic, the drinks connoisseur, the book worm, and the list goes on.
This year, I am sending my Hallmark cards to my family, friends back home who have dispersed due to life’s adventures and the new friends I’ve made in law school. Each has played a pivotal role in 2021 being the year that it has been and will continue to be. At the core, it’s about practicing gratitude towards the people we have in our circle and creating a tradition of doing so in the future.
I hope you can start a new tradition of sending some Hallmarks cards to those around you this holiday season!
A million and one thanks for reading – until my next lil’ thought then!
