Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be You ~ Letters from the Heart

Dear Barbie,

“Because I said so, that’s why!” Bet you never heard those words before, huh? Don’t be a B — Bear 🧸!

Let’s be serious. Being important and recognized is fundamental to a healthy, happy life. You might not realize it, but you are very important, and your efforts do not go unnoticed. Just because someone doesn’t answer your letter doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate hearing from you. Seriously woman, if you stopped writing letters, you, single-handedly, would put the USPS out of business. No lie. Some people just do not have the desire or astuteness to sit down and write a letter. Have you ever met anyone whom likes to write as much as you? No! Maybe one day you will.

Believe me when I tell you, everything you do is recognized. Sometimes you just don’t get to see the fruit of your efforts. Kind of like when Moses led the Israelites to the Promised Land but he never got to cross over into it. ~Deuteronomy 34:1-7. You may not experience the growth of your planted seeds, but God is watching.

The letters you write, the fruit of your love, could be the most important work you ever do. Write your letters, don’t worry about responses. That is not important. It’s your words, your thoughtfulness, the way you care deeply for the ones you love. Be bold, be beautiful, be you.

Until next time,

your constant and faithful,


What is A2ZBlogging? Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z. It doesn’t even have to be a word–it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

  3. Nice one! I am reminded of a saying: “Be yourself. Don’t try to imitate anyone, because you will end up neither being them nor you.”

  4. I have been promising myself for the last few years that I will get started on writing letters by hand.. I do manage to make a hand drawn greeting card and writing a short personal inside every few months but the letter – not yet.. and your series is going to hopefully help me complete this goal I have..
    Love this theme and love this sentence especially today – Write your letters, don’t worry about responses.

  5. My Mom and Dad would write letters to each of us children every week after we left home . . . until they were no longer physically able to do so, just as my Mom’s father did for his children. I miss the weekly letters in the mail box now. My own children have to settle for the weekly email or video chat.

  9. As a card maker, I adore hearing about people who write real letters! Great B. And yes, as a mom I have definitely said, “Because I say so!.”

  10. For me, any writing (letters, notes, poems, stories) is good therapy 😉

  11. I can’t remember the last time I wrote a letter! An email, sure. But letter? The effort of handwriting your personalised thoughts is so special and you have inspired me to take up my pen. Now just to decide, who to write to….

  13. The problem for me is no-one writes letters any more and no one expects letters from me – it’s all email, FaceTime, Facebook or texting!
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  14. How did you know that I needed to read this post today? Thank you. And thank you for visiting my blog, this morning. I honestly don’t know if “poetry” will carry me, A to Z, throughout the month, but that’s where my mischievous imp of a “Muse” chose to lead me yesterday, and today (I haven’t posted on the blog today – I posted on Medium, but it was another poem!)

  16. Sunday Visitor checking in. I love your theme and I loved your choice for B. I agree with you, Moses did not get to see the fruit of his efforts but they did not go unrecognised.

  19. Barbie,

    When I got married I promised all of my girlfriends (we were children when we married; I had just finished my junior year in high school and DH just graduated from college) that I would write to the and I did. Often times those letters went unanswered and despite no visits from the other end, I kept on writing. Most of my adult years I spent writing letters to friends and family. This was an excellent way for me to feel connected even though I didn’t always get a response but when talking to family especially they always mentioned how much my letters meant to them and that made me feel good. Letter writing is good therapy for both parties and hopefully those who do it makes their life more joyful. Great post!
