It always feels great to be appreciated. It is a beautiful feeling when people around you encourage you for the different things you do in life, both big and small. Appreciation motivates you to try harder in whatever you do and be a better version of yourself.
I would like to share a couple of incidents recently that I remember when I was received praise and appreciation.
Winning an inter-school roller-skating race
I once participated in an inter-school roller skating event where I came second in the Finals. I won a trophy & my parents were elated. I have been skating since I was six years old, so it was a wonderful moment. They hugged me and rewarded me by taking me to a “Marvel Studio” to visit my favourite comic superheroes and their film set. Here are some of the pictures taken -
Even today, my mom & dad always take time out to drop me at skating class every day & this motivates me to keep practising and being a better skater day by day!
Securing the First rank in the NELTAS examination
The second incident was when I came first across all schools in India & UAE in a competitive exam for English language (NELTAS). I have been giving this exam for four years & this was the first time I ranked first in the Grand Finale.
I was thrilled when the results came out but was happier when everyone in my family & my teachers appreciated me. They have supported me through thick & thin; hence their applause was all the more special for me.
There are many such times when I have been complimented & supported by my family and friends, even when I have failed. It’s only when you receive such tremendous support that you feel that you can excel in anything you put your mind to!

Everyone has the freedom to dream. It is a beautiful and soulful experience. Children of our age have dreams to become someone according to their likings and expect their parents to help them pursue it. Hence, parents should encourage their children to dream and contribute to the process of fulfilling the same. When parents have different expectations from their children, they do not realize they knowingly or unknowingly put their children under pressure. As a result, the child, in fear of disappointing their parents, forget about their dreams and start following what their parents want them to be. However, these people sometimes are not successful because their heart does not follow them, and their mind is not accepting it. As a child, I also dream of becoming a Sports Star. I love playing sports. I’m passionate about basketball, badminton, and cricket. If you have the determination and are mentally strong, you’ll surely be successful. Last but not least, parents should understand
Ms Aishwarya Kalia Ahuja TGT English Ahlcon Public School I am an experienced English teacher. Alongside teaching, I enjoy writing. I've also authored research papers and published poems. I've a keen interest in research which is always leveraged in analyzing learners' language needs. COURAGE My stories were dealt with mock and fun Sneers, taunts, sarcasm were all I won. All smiles I was in To not let anyone hear my lyrics. I showed Courage every time No matter what the atmosphere is! I needn't put on my armour and show my strength A clear conscience doesn't exhibit its defence. My silence would yell my feats They'd soon regret their mistreat. I'll smile in my lyrics No matter what the atmosphere is! Wheel of time would turn soon. They will dance to my tunes What if I ace up my sleeve In how much time they'd retrieve? All smiles I was in To not let anyone hear my lyrics I showed Courage every time No matter what the atmosphere is!
The Joy of Learning Diaries is a website where students can post their reflections on My Good School’s reading program every Sunday. They can literally post anything they want. We publish the Joy Of Learning Diaries, and our blogs go in an extensive diary where many students can post. We connect the Joy Of Reading with the joy of writing by - What we read in the reading session we reflect upon by writing. What we have written can be converted into a podcast (audio file) - Joy of Speaking. That is how My Good School connects the three joys. In school, we learn academics, but at My Good School, we help improve and enhance the primary interests. We experience the joy of writing, reading and speaking. Apart from that, we have a few partner programs too. Like, Slooh (Space Program) and Sportify (Sports Program). Most important of all, students can become interns! While being an intern sounds like a lot of hard work, it is straightforward as long as you like doing it. I am an intern, an
