For years, I sent a birthday card to everyone I knew. If I knew your birthday and your address, you were going to get a cards from me. Because... doesnt everyone like getting mail on their special day, right? And then, I got jaded. I started to get selfish. I started to think more about the fact that no one sent me cards for my birthday and I stopped caring about making other people happy. I started to think about how everybody is taking the easy way out and just wishes you a happy birthday after facebook reminds them that it's your birthday and I figured nobody really cares anymore.
But I dont want to be jaded. And I dont want to be selfish. So, starting this January, I am back at it again! I've sent out cards for January and am starting to get cards ready for February. I'm coming around. I'm figuring out that it's worth it to do something small, but special, to put a smile on another persons face.
