Let’s start with why. Why would anyone write a love letter to a stranger; aren’t these personalized missives reserved for well-known loved ones?

Yes, sometimes, oftentimes, they are. But the power of writing a stranger a love letter has a ripple effect that you can’t predict.

It’s quite impactful, for both the sender and receiver.

So why write a stranger a love letter? Because it’s a pure form of esteem that can’t help but have a positive impact.

It’s good for you, it’s good for them.

We all have people we admire from afar, people who have impacted the quality of our lives.

Don’t keep that admiration to yourself. Tell them. Send off a note with no attachment declaring how fabulous you believe them to be. Let them hear it, because admiration and love are much more powerful when shared.

If you’re stuck for prose, use this.

Hi { name}!

I’ve admired you from afar for some time and today feels like the perfect day to say that I absolutely love how you {what they do that inspires you}. It’s changed my life {why}.

There’s no need to respond; this is just a love bomb from me to you. I hope you know how fabulous you are.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.


{your name}

Imagine getting a note like that. Imagine the impact it would have on your day. Imagine that maybe you’re feeling a little wobbly about your life, or your work, or yourself. Wouldn’t that, right there, add a  little spark to your spirit?

Write a stranger a love letter. You never know the ripple effect it might have.
