You can achieve anything …

Hi, I'm a mailman and ...   One morning, a mailman popped notes into some mailboxes on his rounds. He had been doing this route for many years and knew many of the  house owners personally. He told them that it was  his way of making people realize their worth, in the hope that it might help them feel better about themselves. This is the note he wrote: ‘Remember at all times that you are a beautiful human being and can achieve anything you wish. Have an awesome day.’

They were up for one month until they dropped off.  No one had the heart to take them down. The fact that someone cared, gave many of the girls hope. Two teachers compared notes and discovered that some of the less confident girls were acting with a bit more self esteem.
