Sentimental Greeting

Every year, when I celebrate my birthday I highly appreciate those people (especially my loved ones and closed friends) who greet me personally (like sending a birthday postcard, sending a personal email, or just calling me over the phone) rather that those people who just sent me a text message or posted a message via the social networking sites. Well I can’t blame them because it’s the easiest way of communication (which I sometimes actually do). However, if the birthday celebrator is really special in your life, you would try to exert an effort to make it somehow memorable.

I cannot argue that these technologies help us to move in face paced. Yes, it definitely helps our lives and our economy. However, in greeting a person, the faster we greet the person, the thoughtless the message is received (almost close enough to being meaningless). As if technology seems to remove warmth meaning of the actual message.

For me, I would still like for someone to greet me personally like the one I’ve mentioned above. If you think that cards or either postcards are all similar, you’re wrong because nowadays you can personalized and print postcards that you will give to your loved ones.

With that being said, I still want to use these technologies for business purposes, but if the events are special and quite personal, then I would rather call myself old-fashioned yet unique and full of human sentiments because for me, handwritten messages often signify how the person is connected with your life.
