This is keyword #008 – Appreciation.
Some questions to consider!
What are the things that you truly appreciate in your life?
What things do you just take for granted that in reality are providing you with happiness, a sense of joy, comfort, pride, love, warmth, excitement, safety, possibility, positive challenge, or feeding your creativity?
In other words, what are the things (including who are the people) you sometimes forget to appreciate.
Are you keeping a journal?
Take time to reflect and make a list in your journal. How do you or how could you show appreciation for what you have?
Appreciating what you have and what you might aspire to acquire or be is a wonderful way to keep intentionally focused on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.
Let me conclude with this quote from John F Kennedy who said…..
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
Let me know what you think.
