Love Letters And A Magical Tin In The Kitchen

Sometimes we like to challenge you with little activities that will help you fall more magnificently in love with your body!

After my grandmother passed, I was helping my dad clean up the kitchen, and we found an old biscuit tin. Inside was a stack of handwritten letters between her sister and her, her dear friends and her, and her husband and her.

The tin smelled of my darling grandmother, and the letters did too. They were an absolute delight to stumble across. Her gorgeous, flowing, handwriting and heartfelt letters, written in a time when we took, time...

So here's a fun exercise I would love you to try; love letters !!

love letters

Set yourself some quiet time, and make your environment as cozy as you can, with lovely music, some incense and make a cup of tea.

For this exercise you don't need anything special, but if you like stationery and fine things, feel free to get your hands on some lovely paper and pens. Personally, I love brush pens, lots of colour, and a lot of sparkly stuff...

Then all you have to do is write!

  • Write a love letter to a dear friend, tell them how much they mean to you, remind them of how special they are, and picture their face when they open it!
  • Write a love letter to your child either to open now, or to open on a special day...
  • Write a love letter to yourself telling yourself all of the wonderful things you admire about yourself.
  • Then seal those envelopes with a kiss, perhaps a spritz of your perfume, and address and send them.
  • Or fill a tin with little love notes to yourself.
  • Or jot down compliments you receive, and keep them...

What a gift you have just created!

Maybe this is something you could create a habit of? Perhaps you could have your own tin in the kitchen filled with treasures...
