Appreciation, I want you!


We all were innocent in our childhood. We all walked along the road of shifts and changes, trying to survive it all. And If you are reading this article, congratulations mate, we both are alive. And if you aren’t, then you’re a ghost(sarcasm).


But if you are still alive and running, then you in literal sense have been running, running and running away from things that worry you. With that innocence lost, running after one thing or another, or even away from it, is all that you can afford. But there is that one glittery-charmer which can make anyone do even the most tiring or dreaded work. *Drumbeats* Yes, this charmer is reward.
Each one of us wants to be appreciated. Each one of us wants to be praised. Or in fact, to be loved. Yes! We need it all and that’s all we need. If you’d remember clearly, there would be some prize or another that you would have definitely wanted in return of completing the task.
You’d even want someone to at least call you beautiful, talented, cute, smart or so. Being a girl, I’ve realized that, you must be either beautiful (accept the fact) or must have working brains. That’s the only way you survive. If, by any chance you have both, then there’s nothing that can stop you.

Not everybody is equal. There are people who have worked hard and molded themselves in a way that they seem today, different from others. Not everybody is born to rule, there are people who are born to follow as well.

A star that shines so bright in the night sky, doesn’t ask for people to give it something in return, it just wants to be appreciated. That star in the night sky, just wants us to admire it. (My deep thoughts)

Since childhood we all have been compared to those others, who have something really worth noticing in them. For example, smartness. This makes us either crib or be aggressive towards that ‘star child’. Similarly, we all have blemishes called ‘Regrets’. To be frank, the best people are those, who don’t regret much. Since the thing has already happened, just get over with it, be it relationships or even a lost job. The bad has already happened, let’s not regret for more than 10 minutes. Or why even 10 minutes?

Rewards and appreciation are a necessary part of life to promote the ‘talented.’ So that, the ‘talented’ goes abroad and the ‘not-so-talented’ gets the government jobs. (sarcasm, again!)

If you get a reward, then you must at the same time be worthy of it. The way up to a reward, comes with at least a bit of hard work. A reward also comes to you, because a lot of people can’t do something that you can do very easily. Think about it.

Let’s evolve and get a few rewards.
