“Yo! Read many of your blog entries..and I should say liked it a lot ! keep them coming …and inspired by you, I going to to copy the ‘Gratitude’ idea onto my own journal (private)…unless it is protected by patents and such “
I received this unexpectedly from a friend a couple of months back. Given that this guy reads some pretty esoteric stuff, I have chosen to take it as a pretty big compliment.
There have been a few people who have read my posts, and talked to me about them, and helped me get better. But when I started writing, I was pretty nervous that I would sound lame, or that my writings wouldn’t have any uniqueness, and the whole world would laugh at me.
The thing which gave me confidence to continue writing was this statement made by 2 people – “You should write more often. When you write, it actually feels like you are talking to the person.”.
One of them is a dear friend and he knows I am grateful for his support. But the other person and I have drifted apart due to various reasons. This post is to just let her know that I appreciate her encouraging words.
It’s very easy to forget someone’s contribution to your life in the web of disagreements and disconnect. And all you are left with is a sad feeling about your association. But if we actually take the time out to appreciate what they have done, maybe, just maybe, your perception of the world might just change. Gratitude, has a nice way of overshadowing discontentment.
