The Expectation Of Appreciation

There was a time when most people would make the sacrifice, and do the hard right instead of the easy wrong. But times have changed, and whoever said that change was good is definitely a cock eyed optimist. Because all change is not good. It seems as if some societal advances have stymied character development. These days if anybody does anything that even resembles right, they want instant gratification, and they expect instant recognition as if being moral is an exception deserving of reward. But the fact of the matter is that most times there is no immediate tangible reward for doing the right thing. The reward should be the feeling that we get when we take the proper course of action. The gratification should be in doing the deed, & not being rewarded for doing the deed. Most times there will be little or no appreciation from people for taking the high road. But your mind, your body and your soul will  continuously be blessed.
