We may be surrounded by the most caring parents, loving siblings, warm aunties or sweet friends but, do we ever put aside some time to tell them how important they are to us.
Or do we merely take them for granted and forget that they are a blessing to us?
Feeling appreciated or loved is what keeps people going daily in a world that is not so kind. So it is ultimately necessary for anyone to return love to those people who have mattered most in their lives as it makes them feel better and therefore helps them focus on what is good in any situation.
For those who are so insensitive or blind to the point where they can’t see the importance of people around them should borrow a leaf from the following quote”
“One never realizes how important something is, not until they have lost it.”
In other words, let us learn to say “thank you” to the people who have enriched our lives in different ways when they can still afford to breath.
Tell those people, who are object to your affection that you appreciate the time and wisdom they have always offered, the patience they have exhibited towards you, acknowledge the efforts they have made to make you a better person as this makes them feel honoured and needed.
I know some people never feel appreciated therefore have a difficult time appreciating others but give it a try—the results are amazingly fruitful.Appreciate others and you will be appreciated .
Aside from people and relationships, there are certain things we take for granted yet they are paramount to our well being, have you ever woken up one morning and said “Thanks to the beautiful sun”?
You can imagine how scary it would be living in a world of darkness! Appreciate the smells of nature, laughter of children, the hooting and screeching of cars on the streets and other day-to-day occurrences.
We have all heard this phrase, “If you have health, you have everything,” gratitude to a healthy body and mind is something we are often reminded when of when exposed to a person who is not as fortunate.
Therefore we should learn to be glad when we are physically and mentally sound.
In conclusion, go to sleep with gratitude for the day no matter what happened or how things turned out, even if it’s a gloomy and rainy day, be grateful that another day stands before you.
Gratefulness will comfort and make anyone a happier human being.
