Tag Archives: thank you


Don’t ever grow bigger than saying “please” and “thank you”.

Don’t ever grow beyond ” I am sorry” or “I apologise”.

Personal growth is not about increase in size rather its about increase in wisdom and being willing to have your perception challenged.


I came across a quote recently which asked ,
” what if you woke up tomorrow with only what you were grateful for today?”
it struck me how gradually we as a people have been losing touch with how to say “thank you”.
We have begun to see good actions as our right and so don’t appreciate them anymore.
Our lives have become increasingly more comfortable so we have all we need so why be thankful for the “extra”.  Gratitude is the easiest route to happiness.
Today take a deep breath and decide to be grateful for every good thing that comes your way.

To appreciate people is something we don’t do as often as it is required. So for me today I want to show my appreciation to all those in my life who have consistently been a light in my dark times and a smile in my sad times.

This is  tirled “Your Smile” by Julie Herbert

Your smile lights my way through life,

And keeps me warm inside.

It reminds me that people are good,

Especially when their snide.

Your smile helps me though each day,

Knowing I’ll soon see if again.

It even makes me want to smile,

Even when I’m in pain.

Your smile can take my moods away,

And help me to see it another way.

It reminds me not too take things so hard,

And so seriously every day.

Your smile I am so very thankful,

And of course for you as well.

You always know just what to say,

And never let me dwell.

So thank you so much for all your smiles,

And for loving me each day.

Life can be very tough but thankfully,

I’ve got you to help shine my way.


A couple of weeks ago I thought it would be an interesting experiment to take up blogging and see how it will help my pursuit to inspire people to live better lives. I needed a platform to engage the world and offer to the public my thoughts on what to strive for and how to aspire to be better.

Four weeks down the line I am immensely humbled and encouraged by the more than a thousand people who have become part of this platform either as viewers or visitors. That I could be encouraged in the way that I have been, by other bloggers who have no stake in my pursuit was awe inspiring. Together; the non-blogger readers and the blogger readers brought me here, to this point in time where I say thank you.

Thank you for showing me how to let loose what God has secured in me for the world. I am still a newbie but also an appreciative one.

To those on my blog roll, Barrira, steven farquharsc, Magdalena, ben broenen , stephaniesocial , takingthemaskoff, Lourdes @ tribeloco, inspirational hope, michelle kim, vasanganyado, annie b, ifrahrao, k.l.register, dacomh, tim A. jackcollier7, stuart perkins, inkstinct, rileycarrbusinessassociate,sarahsugden1  …… thank you for following me even when I was standing on one leg.

I can only say thank you and hope that you see the depth of my gratitude not the shortness of my words.
