It’s time for #52hellos! And this is the very first week of letters! So cool.
(If you’re not sure what #52hellos is head here for details).
This week I’m featuring two hellos. The first one (above) is from Dot.
Dot wrote her letter from Canberra after living in Perth for a while. I won’t show you all of the letter (because some things are just between letter writers and letter receivers, you know?) but I wanted to share Dot’s ideas for a happy 2015. She wrote a bit about the importance of not relying on other people for your happiness, and I totally agree! Thanks for the ace reminder, Dot. Thanks for writing such a lovely, personal letter too.
I’m going to use 2015 to learn (re-learn?) how to find my own happiness, and I’ve got some ideas.
1. 365 days – use my social media to share 3 great things about each day (mindfulness)
2. Create and give – I love to knit, crochet, sew, so I’m going to finish setting up my space and then MAKE time to create
3. Explore – I adore Canberra! I’m a very proud Canberran, so I’m going to make Saturdays about trying out new cafes, restaurants, galleries, parks etc
4. Be entertained – rather than find people to do things with (waiting on people to check their dairies can take ages!) I’m just going to buy a ticket to the things I want to do and do them on my own!

The other hello is from Pat (Dot + Pat! Cute 3 letter names!) – below
Pat sent a sweet, little note with some tiny treasures tucked inside. It was so nice to see those stamps from Thailand (how pretty are they compared to Australian stamps?!) So ace to open up a cheery pop of cuteness! The tiny paper crane is so adorable! How did you do that?! Thanks so much Pat!
I’m Pat from Bangkok, Thailand. This is my first time send happy mail to someone who is not my friend (in relay life, haha). Hope you like my little things I send. Best, Pat
If you’d like to send me a hello the details on how to do that are here.
I’m going to settle down and write my letter for this week later this afternoon.It’s a rainy, stormy, humid day so it’s the perfect stay inside and get writing kind of occasion. If you want to start #52hellos and write a letter to someone in your life (or not) each week you can get started anytime! I’m writing one a week – starting this week – but you could start at anytime during the year and count 52 from then! Or write more than one letter a week, if you are amazing!
