Great idea! I'm going to give it a shot. Quick note to USA folks about international postage: it doesn't matter if it's a post card it's still going to cost $1.15 international stamps not the $0.34 post card stamps, so you might want to write a small letter and include a post card in the envelope, or put the post card in an envelope since you'll be paying the same amount.

I just came across your blog while doing research on the difference between receiving real letters verses email. Lovely post! I just put out a Young Adult novella (it was released on January 29th) called Passing Notes. A large part of the plot involves a teenage boy learning how to write a love letter, by hand, in cursive, and putting it in the real mail to impress a girl. I think you might enjoy it. It's available at Amazon

Lately the only thing that motivates me is knowing I have a daughter who looks up to me as a role model.

This is perfect! I've been trying to wrap my head around this same concept. I feel that most of us are guilty of being blinded in this way, and it's better to acknowledge that fact then not! Thus, also changing our ways.

It's true that most of us want to capture the moment so they could have another picture on Instagram. I guess the moments where you don't have the time to take your phone to take a picture are the ones staying with us.

I love a quick Yoga session to center myself especially when things get busy. And also remembering whats important and what I can let go of. Another huge factor is to not have picture-perfect expectations but deciding to just go with the flow :) http://whatwecandotoday.wordpress.com

Love these! Especially enlisting help, planning ahead, and not forgetting yourself. This year I have been totally vegging out at night with books or shows -- like EVERY night, something I don't let myself get away with during the rest of the year. It may feel like a guilty pleasure, but it's allowing my body to store up strength and energy for the go-time right around the corner when every moment is going to be full of activities. And while I used to like checking items off my list alone, I've definitely discovered how much easier this time of year can be with the right buddy to help you through it. In addition to these things, I'm making sure that I drink tons of water, keep snacks on hand at all times so I don't have any blood sugar crashes while stuck in a line somewhere, give myself lots of days 100% free of any coffee or alcohol that might dehydrate, and take my supplements daily. This is always when I get sick and I'm determined to keep it at bay this year! www.threadandbones.com

Post image for Boredom: A Blessing In Disguise

It’s like a stagnant hum that lingers in the mind. It comes about, somewhat unannounced, and shoos any form of entertainment out the door: Boredom. Read more »

When you are bored, do not complain!! Realize that boredom = free time = a time to get to know oneself better. Grab a brush, a camera, a book--try to stay away from the tv--go out into nature and become nature. Our lives are so guided to distance ourselves from our true selves, our nature, our spirit and bodies--mother earth within us. Go find what makes your heart move.

I'm really fortunate to have grown up in southern california. I call the beaches up and down the coast from san clemente to laguna beach home, and I grew up surfing, paddleboarding and running on beachside trails. My school has an ocean view, and i work on PCH at the best local surf shop. California has such a special place in my heart. Free people should definitely think about taking a trip down to San Clemente and Laguna Beach, it has the most magical secluded beaches, good food and the locals are always friendly.

South bay (socal's south bay) born and raised! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to grow up. Although I love traveling, every time I fly over downtown, see dodger stadium from the air in front of mountains and the ocean in the distance, I get chills. It always feels so good to come home no matter where I've been.
