There is need for us as human beings to appreciate ourselves especially in this hard time.
Some people are committing suicide because no one appreciates the little efforts they put into what they so.
The truth is, it is easier to complain about the little that is undone rather than appreciating what has been done.
Henry Ward Beecher says “Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul”
“If you do not show appreciation to those that deserve it, they will learn to stop doing the things you appreciate”
A lot of us erroneously believe that some people especially those working for us do not deserve to be appreciated since they are being paid for the services they are rendering.

Make someone happy today by appreciating them.
