Write a Letter to One of Your Children

Take the opportunity today to write a letter to one of your children.


You may have children that are fully grown and living lives of their own. You may have teenagers still at home or in college. You may have younger children, maybe even toddlers or babies. Some of you might not have any children at all and others may have lost chil- dren.


Whichever situation you find yourself give this guide some thought. Something will come to mind. You may want to thank them. You may want to forgive them. You may want to apologise or simply reconnect. You may want to reminisce or encourage or send a sim- ple message of love. You may want to speculate about what they may be like in years to come. You may want to beckon them.


Once written – post it. Maybe it’ll have an address maybe it won’t. But post it. That simple act will instantly embed that sentiment in your soul. It’s not so important that your child reads it as much as you symbolically or actually send it. That letter will be a direct path into your emotions. Do it and see.
