Is your signature your seal?
Isn’t it a joyful thing to be able to write out your thoughts, no matter the language. You can speak positive into this world but if you write it down —it will be there for all generations to come. In saying that, let’s leave behind us a legacy of love and wisdom. Using your words wisely will transform your world. We can choose to leave our mark, stamp or seal as it were with our heads held high.
The purpose of a seal is to indicate the authenticity of your document, letter or work. Usually stamped with a monogram or family coat of arms, this is most helpful against mail tampering as the wax is overlapped over the closure of the envelope or package. Sometimes used for legal purposes but not exclusively. The seal can be made of wax however in this digital age you may find it in print on letterhead, as well as in the form of round sticker seals on envelopes.The history of the seal dates back centuries and were first made of clay, then engraved, dipped in dye and used as identification. With hand-written mail mostly off to the wayside this method is primarily used for nostalgic or simply for pleasure. In my humble opinion the seal also adds an element of sophistication.
Nonetheless, it is prudent to remember your signature at the end of whatever, whenever and wherever you write — that is your stamp. Let your signature indicate your seal of authenticity! It demonstrates pride in your work and personal integrity. It is basically saying ~ I give you my word ~ what is created and written by you is true and Amen. That my friend is your true gold seal.
