I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time so far to read yesterday’s blog. I have been astounded by the amazing response that I’ve had. I really wasn’t expecting it!
As I had been following Faye on Twitter (since late Feb cause that’s what I started blogging), I had seen her preparing for the marathon. I then read the 26 different stories and it just amplified my interest in her project.
When I realised that hours later I was still thinking about her work, and the other people’s story’s I realised that this might me something I wanted to share!
This past day or so has made me think about the quote from Anne Frank:
‘Dead people receive more flowers than living ones because regret is stronger than gratitude.’
This quote is still true today, and it shows that people are not always free in giving compliments and praises to people for their qualities, achievements or simply appreciation of the person, even if they want to. Then they are regretful when the moment has past.
So, if you admire the good that you see in other people, tell them.
If you admire someone for their kindness or good work, speak out.
If you just want to tell someone close to you that you love them and everything they do, say it!
Everyone needs to be appreciated for the wonderful things that they do every day.
Thanks again for reading,
