Several times in therapy groups this week, there was spontaneous applause, as people supported each other’s perspectives and progress.
I remember attending an “Opening the Heart” weekend workshop many years ago, where each one of us received thunderous, sustained applause after introducing ourselves. I still vividly recall how that applause felt, after I had revealed myself and my vulnerabilities to many strangers.
How do you respond to applause?
Last night, I was surprised by the timing of the applause to my latest original song, “Shameless Appeals for Applause.”
I now shamelessly appeal for applause for my photos from yesterday:
No matter what kind of comment you leave below, you’re sure to get applause from me.
Gratitude is a kind of applause, so I’m now clapping for all those who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — YOU.
