You can use these examples as inspiration for your own open letter, but also consider different approaches:

A humor or satirical piece addressed to a celebrity or person in the news.
A piece of constructive criticism (or praise) to a politician, either international or local.
A letter to a thing — one of your fears, a habit you’d like to break, etc.
A note to yourself at a specific age/year in the future.
What other ideas for open letters do you have?

Dear Me,

I almost never say this, I say it to others but never to us, I am proud of us and the things that we have done together. Since 2007 when we almost died in the hospital, we have certainly come a long way with our health and taking care of ourself. I know that we still have a few health issues that we need to respect and take care of on a daily basis, but we no longer make the very poor choices that we used to in the past. I am particularly impressed with our continued commitment to not smoking, if ever there was a monumental challenge, quitting the cigarette was the most intense battle ever. We did it however and come November first 2013, it will be six years since a cigarette graced our lips, that is indeed something to be proud of and celebrated. I am also proud of our daily recognition that food is a vital part of our life and not the enemy, that step was also huge and it was one of the main reasons we ended up in the hospital, but every day and in every way we are getting better and better with our relationship towards food, a little borrowing from Captain Dreyfuss in “The Revenge of the Pink Panther” I love that movie.

I have said it before, but I will say it again, I am proud of the way that we have embraced writing and the discipline to post something everyday. Something else to be acknowledged is the way that we keep up or at least try to keep up with the friends that we have made through blogging. Reaching out is somewhat difficult for us, I know, but the fact that we do it, is something to continue and have fun with and enjoy.

Keep up the great work and remember this is for the both of us, you and me.

your truly, me. 🙂
