"Gratitude" is probably the most-used word in my vocabulary. I always speak of it whenever I am with my friends, family and other special persons in my life. I also use it as a hashtag in almost all the photos I post in my social networking accounts. At the same time, "gratitude" is what I write about in my blog posts. The reason for this is because there are just so many things in my life that I am truly grateful of. Every single day, I find amazing circumstances, great experiences and lovely people to be thankful of. And this time, I am grateful for another year and chapter in my life. Two days ago, on May 8, 2014, I celebrated my birthday with the people who has always been there for me since the beginning of time and the same people who have shared their lives with me.
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom.” ― Marcel Proust
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every
good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously.
And because all things have contributed to your advancement,
you should include all things in your gratitude.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want to give a shout out to everyone who came to my simple birthday party and to all those who greeted me so I made this story via storify.
