Be honest: do you remember the first hug you willingly gave? What about your first handshake? Or the first time you said ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ without that nudge from Mom or Dad? All of these behaviours we learn from a young age until they become ingrained and we know exactly when and how to do them, but we generally don’t remember the first time we performed them.
We send cards the same way. We’ve grown up learning that for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays or special family events, you send a card. It’s become a pattern of behaviour that we’ve learned makes others happy and makes us feel better. We know that when we choose a card, pair it with a heartfelt message and send it to our loved ones, they will experience feelings of happiness, joy and love.
But don’t you wish you could remember that first time you sent a card? That first feeling of anticipation while your loved one opened it? Like a baby taking its first steps, you were nervous, a little unsure, but secretly confident that things would work out. We want you to experience that feeling again!
This month try getting that first-time feeling back by sending a card you’ve never sent before for a reason you’ve never thought of before. Try sending a card for a birthday or a quirky holiday like National Taco Day (generally celebrated Oct. 4 each year) or some other fun occasion. Or find a silly card that reminds you of something a friend does! Send your first ‘just because’ card. The possibilities are endless. We make it easy for you because with SendOutCards you can create your own card or find the perfect one among the thousands available! So once you start you’ll find that there are more reasons than ever to send a card and more ‘firsts’ than you ever imagined!
