Saying thank you always makes me happy. The driver who takes me home, the ‘mama mboga’ at the market, the supermarket attendant who serves me; I say thank you to them all. The one thing that gives me joy and satisfaction in this life is showing gratitude. It isn’t about what I get in return, it is about what I experience as a person.

Good morning dear. Thank you for coming into my life, for being my pillar, my friend and much more. I hope you continue to stay there. I love you~ Ed Moraa

I was left speechless after reading this, it isn’t everyday someone appreciates me to this extent. I felt special, I am special. Maybe I haven’t appreciated you until now, here it is, thank you for reading my posts each time I publish. Thank you for being my audience, thank you for being my invisible friend, thank you for being my family. Thank you for being in my life.

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ~ Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love.

It takes one to make one. Only they who understand the importance of gratitude will willingly share it with others. Are you lost? Tired of everyone and everything around you? Are you in a rut, wondering how to get out? Let me recommend to you a dose of gratitude, try it today and you will see the difference. There is no better attitude to posses than The Attitude of Gratitude.

Thank you Ed, for brightening my day.
