Feeding the ego or lauding the soul? Either way, I know perception is relative. I’m posting these compiled proofs of GRATITUDE because I’M PROUD not of their praises but of the fact that GRATEFULNESS still EXISTS in this age when almost everything is digital, wireless or remotely controlled.
Appreciation, if freely given makes you happy, definitely!
In whatever form, expressions of THANK YOU always leave a healthy scar on the heart.
On a much lighter note, even CELEBRITIES know how to say THANK YOU to anonymous soul like me.
Exhibit A : Jim Paredes of the ever famous Filipino singing group APO, replied to my email when I asked him about schedules of his photography class in Patis Tesoro’s garden cafe in Quezon after Christmas (I got a negative response but made me smile ear to ear!)….
Exhibit B : Immediately after watching The Kitchen Musical on AXN (musical TV series presently being shown all over Asia where Filipino artists are featured with no less than Gerard Salonga as musical director and arranger), I tweeted Karylle Tatlong Hari (the star of the show and daughter of Zsazsa Padilla) and she INSTANTLY sent me DM! *kilig*
Exhibit C : A simple appreciation of my unsolicited advice in one of CVS’ well-read posts. Those words were short but totally spoke of acknowledgment.
I therefore conclude, GRATITUDE is the BEST ATTITUDE!
When did you last utter the words, THANK YOU?
What were your most memorable recognition or acts of gratefulness?
Me? The mere fact that my family and I are waking up every morning is more than enough to be thankful for!
Thank you to those people who are appreciative. Sana huwag kayo maging extinct!
