In 1972, when I was in sixth grade, my teacher told me that I had “the most beautiful handwriting.” Well it certainly has gone downhill since then. In an effort to improve myself I have decided to write much more slowly and neatly. I intend for my handwriting and my signature to be a “thing of beauty” like it was back in sixth grade. For me this is an excellent way to slow down and I suppose, a way to stand out. After all, most people no longer utilize handwriting. And, those who do often do so in a rushed and sloppy way -doctors and lawyers please take heed. It may not seem like a world changer, but sometimes doing just one little thing to improve-like consciously improving your handwriting, can make a tremendous difference in your life.
