A Note from Lynn:
What if your Firefly has passed away or you are unable to reconnect? The act of writing out a gratitude letter has been shown to be beneficial to your mental health even if it is impossible to send or deliver it to the recipient. Some people have found it to be therapeutic to release it in a ritual by burying or burning. Be creative — you can even just use your imagination and envision sending it or delivering it to the person. It is up to you.
Your mission for today:
Gratitude - Write a gratitude letter for someone on your list.
Reconnecting with your “Fireflies”: Just in case they didn’t make it on your initial list, remember the people in your life that impacted your life in a significant way in the past. Use this opportunity to reach out and reconnect; it’s never too late to recognize someone for inspiring or encouraging you. Idea: teachers are often underappreciated, and when they get a letter of thanks from a former student, it leaves a big impact.
Pull out that “More Beauty” card and write a note of gratitude to someone that comes to mind as a Firefly.
We'd love for you to comment as you finish these action steps! Let's create community and be inspired by the stories of these cards and the people writing and receiving them.
