Beauty of a Different Kind: The Beauty of Appreciation

My dad always said "سوي خير وعقه فالبحر" which means "Do good & throw it in the Sea".. It's an Arabic proverb in our Emarati dialect.. It means that when you help others, don't wait for anything in return.. And that might sound easy, but sometimes a little appreciation means a lot.. Even if it were in just two small words "Thank You"..

I read once that..

"The Deepest Craving in Human Beings is to be Appreciated"

And ain't that the truth..

Photography & Words by: Delyteful Speaks

There's a tune that pain started
One which hope will now complete
So put aside the silent screams
And listen to the emancipation of my dreams
I'm more than what you see
Coz there's a person inside of me

Take the time to appreciate those around you.. What they've done for you.. However small..

Take the time to appreciate the simple things in life..

Take the time to appreciate the uniqueness of a culture, tradition, religion and civilization..

Take the time to appreciate who you are and what you've become..

Support One Another..
Love One Another..
Be Grateful For One Another..
Coz There's Nothing More Beautiful Than a Little Appreciation

This was very refreshig to read. Every new years, instead of making a physical resolution I try to work on my personal self, like how I view the world. This year it was to be more appreciative about everything. So this was a good boost. Thank you :)

I definately feel this. Everytime I help someone in need, i never ask for something in return, but sometimes showin me that you appreciate it, worth so much more. Reagrdless if its giving out money or helping out with someone else work, showing gratitude can mean so much more. thank u for doing this post :) its a nice way to spread your words across.
