Universal Letter Writing Week, January 10-17, encourages us to put pen to paper or fingertips to keyboard and write to someone. Most likely, you communicate with the people in your life via email and texts these days, and writing letters is a lost art. Picture your younger self and write yourself an actual letter. Think back … At what stage of your life would a letter from who you are now have been most helpful? What advice would you give yourself? What stories would you like your younger self to know? Share your "letter to my younger self" stories forward.

Happy New Year! Now that we have expressed gratitude at the Thanksgiving table, and the season of gift giving is over, some formal thank yous might be in order—but how formal? Are handwritten thank you notes relics of the past or still relevant? When, if ever, does an email or text suffice? Think back … to how you were taught to thank others. What about now? How do you or your children offer thanks for presents or kind gestures? And is saying “you’re welcome” a lost art? Share your Thank You stories forward.

Think back…what form, if any, has bingeing taken in your life? Are you currently enjoying something binge-worthy? Share your "What are you bingeing?" stories forward.
