Gratitude shouldn't only be expressed during grand events; rather, this should emanate even with the littlest of things. As for me, I am always thankful whenever I can go to the office on time because traffic in our area seems to be getting worse. Each time I don't have to walk a long way from home to office is something so magnificent that I have decided to make a tally for times I was late, and times that I wasn't. Instead of whining about such things, I just tell myself that things could have been worse than this. I'm lucky that I'm only facing heavy traffic.
For the past few days, I have been so depressed that I decided to distance myself from people, even from my family and friends. There are times when I will not respond to their message, and worse, I will totally cut any form of communication. But even though I have been so distant, they didn't give up on me and continued supporting me. This, I will forever be thankful. From that day on, I do make a point to always send them a thank-you message to let them know that I appreciate them, and everything they've done for me.
