Step 4: Write three things you appreciate about each person in their card and either mail or hand deliver them. Write things like, "I appreciate your smile each time I'm in your checkout line at the store." Or, "Mom, I really appreciate that you care so much even when we disagree. I always know you're there and that comforts me."
As you know, we don’t get notes of appreciation very often and you can easily make someone’s day, or week or month or year! That’s why it’s important to send them to people you truly care about regardless of how often you see them.

Step 5: Plan your day and evening with some fun, lighthearted or empowering activity. Enjoy positive friends if you have some already, watch a favorite upbeat movie that inspires you, yoga, read an inspiring book, Skype with long-distance friends or family.
Relax, knowing in your heart that next year you may be in a relationship if that's your goal but I expect the majority of the responses you get from this year’s cards will be enough to cement this as your new tradition even if you are enjoying a new love. And your future significant other will marvel at your sincerity and willingness to make what can be a negative holiday for singles into something so magical for you and those you love and will likely join in.
