How to Write a Heartfelt Message

Woman Typing a Token Moment Message at a Computer

Sometimes, it can be hard to find the right words. Writer’s block is real! But writing a sincere note is meant to be a feel-good moment; remember, it’s the thought that counts here. So when you’re not sure what to write, take a few moments to think about the person and why they are important to you - then dive right in!

Start with a friendly greeting, using their name to set a personal tone. Consider what prompted you to send them a Token Moment and express why you're writing, whether it's to celebrate exciting news, offer support, or simply catch up. We encourage you to use a conversational and casual style, as if you're speaking directly to them. You could even share a few specific details, memories, or anecdotes to make the note more engaging and heartfelt. Conclude with a warm closing that reaffirms your relationship, like "Looking forward to seeing you soon!" or "Take care and stay in touch." Don't forget to sign off with your name (or a friendly nickname they know you by). This thoughtful but low-pressure approach ensures they’ll appreciate your genuine message.
