#SkylarkChallenge
#ThankYou

Dear Skylarkers,

I recently saw the thank you prompt provided by our wonderful Lettrs Staff. An uplifting suggestion and one which I felt able to join in with. It also seems the perfect opportunity to express my enormous thanks to those of you who've participated in my #SkylarkChallenge since it's conception.

You'd might be surprised to learn though, that I have put this off for several days as the idea of giving thanks fills me with slight trepidation. Why?, because there are so, so many of you! That's why. It's therefore an  impossible task to name everyone. But there are some individuals who come to mind because their participation stands out. But before proc...

The biggest mistake is being too afraid to ever make one.

Always take the chance, to win or lose, fly or fall, for that’s where we learn who we really are.

Dear Drew and the Lettrs Team,

Thank you for creating Painly. I’ve read hundreds of letters, here, about depression, suicide, addictions and many other painful experiences and situations.
It is heartbreaking to read a letter about a young girl or boy who’s depressed, lost, isolated, and feeling despair.

I recently read a letter where a person wrote that at some point in their life they will kill themselves. How do you respond to that? How does the Lettrs team cope to those cries for help? How do you cope?

It can’t be easy, but it hasn’t gone unnoticed because you created Painly. I’m a survivor of depression and suicide, and the despair it can cause, but I found help.

It was many yea...

I think the belief in one’s self takes half of a lifetime to learn,
and the other half to actually do something worthwhile with it.

The accelerator of it all is faith.

Dear friends,
I was gone for a little while, and I am sorry.  

I needed to find my thoughts again after saying goodbye to my dog and best friend, Shane, of almost 13 years. He was a part of lettrs, because he was a part of my life’s lasting experiences, showing kindness and loyalty when I needed it most.

Animals like Shane can make us better people by simply inviting us to be always present, here and now, content with the moments of togetherness.  

So I lost my beloved Shane - but he is now a forever memory, and carrier of the message, no the mandate, to live a life where the present is truly part of every day.

Dear Leader and team,

Thank you for this wonderful platform. You people helped me spend my one and a half months of vacation peacefully. Since I kept myself busy writing, I had no time to focus on things that troubled my mind. I am happy I never picked up quarrels with anyone. I didn't even have to worry about thinking how to spend time at home all alone. I was happy. I'll be back to work on black Monday. That doesn't mean I'll stop writing. I'll continue to write to keep my heart contented. Thank you. God bless.

Regards,
Angela Benham

Dear Drew,
I want to thank you for this app. This is the most amazing writing app I’ve come across till date. I’m glad you considered me for having my lettrs account verified, but I’m really surprised someone recommended you my account. This was totally unexpected.
I’ll be most honoured to share more of my writings upon here. This is one great platform to reach out. It’ll be really great if my account was verified. I’ll b able to reach more people that way.

I’ve already been spreading word about the app, personally to my friends and also on my social media like Instagram and Facebook. And those people have been loving it too. The writers find this as an amazing platform to express, and thos...

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,

Oh my goodness I’m all giddy inside as I contemplate which words could possibly formulate an expression to convey my deepest gratitude for your recognition. What a high honor and prestigious award it is to be selected as a VIP here on my favorite writing app..
Drew, honestly... I’m at a loss for tangible words (this doesn’t happen very often, I might add) that might formulate an expression that could even come close to simulating the excitement, thrill and adrenaline as it soars through my veins in the way in which I feel inside...
What a way to open an app after penning one of my most emotionally charged, heartfelt pieces as of yet to be written and as I was coming i...
