Dear Beautiful Souls here on Medium,

Today, I woke up with a happy heart because my Medium email says, The Just Reflections followers just reached 10. And my day just got filled with so much joy.

I know this sounds so cheesy to celebrate a simple milestone like literally 10 followers. Because why not? We pop confetti to a million YouTube subscribers or a 10K Instagram followers, why not celebrate on TEN MEDIUM FOLLOWERS?

I came across this blog post about celebrating little things in life. It was really a nice motivational post that it pushed me writing this. It says there and I quote:

“…celebrating the little things, is that it boosts your motivation. No matter what you’re working towards in your life, you’re going to need a good level of motivation to keep striving to achieve it. By celebrating the small milestones along the way, it keeps you motivated and focused on your end goal.” — Naomi Isted

This made me realized how beautiful life would be if only we’re so thankful of every little thing we have, big or small.

Because I can’t thank you enough, I dedicate this space to shout each and every one of you.

Hello Miss Pam! Your recent submission is just lit. Thank you for sharing the universe with us. Your writing style is really interesting and I want to learn that from you. You are amazing. Please continue sharing your reflections to the world, and to the rest of us. Graci!

Ben Shelley

For some reason, I fell in-loved with your content. You’ve given Medium a fresh perspective of how we see the world and writing. Your stories are on-point and I love how you arranged your thoughts in every piece. I must say, you’re a genius!

Benjamin Lim

I can’t really find any useful information about you, my dearest friend. But I’m beyond grateful for the support you’ve shared with the publication. Thank you so much.

Ben McGary

My Ben! Sorry. Stalked you and you’re all over. (Insert lol emoji). I can’t forget you because you are that guy I commented on when you published your “About Me” story. Thank you so much, my man, for being one of the few people who made my day today. That means so much. Followed you on LinkedIn, by the way. And I look forward to the success of your new venture — Standard Contact. That’s really interesting. Good luck, my friend!

Niet van der Zand

Hallo mijn vriend! I’m not sure if that’s correct. Lol. Wow, your poems are so beautiful. You evoke endearing emotions in every line. Oh how I envy your writing style. You’re such a talented beautiful soul. And I’m so glad you’ve stumbled upon our publication. I’d be glad to welcome your poetry pieces. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you want to join our Writing Pillars. Thank you for sharing your beautiful reflections to the world.


Like Benjamin, I know you’re also a bookworm who just love Medium so much. How I wish you’ve published some stories so we can read and share it to the universe too. But even then, thank you for being one of the first 10 followers of /the just reflections.

EP McKnight, MEd

One of the most amazing women I know in Medium. I’ve been your follower since the time ‘I-can’t-remember’. I was stunned by your positivity and enthusiasm. A woman like you is such an honor to have in a circle. I’m so grateful for your presence at The Just Reflections. And thank you for publishing my pieces at Illumination. Please continue to shine, because you are!

And the 10th is me. Lol.

Just 10 but great and genuine people

What’s my reason not to celebrate with this beautiful, bright people? From the bottom of my heart — THANK YOU SO MUCH!
