When feeling at your weakest you end up showing more strength, when at your lowest you are suddenly lifted above higher that you’ve ever been. They all border one another, those opposites, and how quickly we can be altered. Despair can be altered by one simple smile offered by a stranger; confidence can become fear by the arrival of one uneasy presence. Everything is on the verge, always brimming the surface, a slight shake, a tremble sends things toppling.
How similar emotions are.
— Thanks For The Memories by Cecelia Ahern
I finished reading this book day before yesterday and ever since then it has had me hanging on the edge. I'm not going to review it. I just want to say how it had me thinking.
This book gives a new meaning to the word Thank You. It shows how a single thank you can change one person's life and how we must value it.
If a person deserves to be thanked, then he must be. I think that's because by thanking a person, you are acknowledging that person's action. It motivates him. It makes him look up if he was ever down in a trench and was waiting to be lifted.
It doesn't matter if you inhibit yourself from telling a simple "Thanks" considering it as a fad not to, you still have to.
Because when you thank somebody, it makes them happy and wanted.
And I think that each and every single person in this planet is wanted.
