Episode 17, January 2022: The Value of Appreciation
Normally as we turn the corner on a new year, we often hear talk of new beginnings and goal setting and creating a clear vision for the coming year, among other things. It’s great stuff, and I’m sure you’re going to hear a lot of that from other people in the next few weeks. But today, in this Soul Memo, I’ve decided to speak about something else, something which, in my own mind at least, is just as important, if not more important!
I’m talking about appreciation!
Appreciation is not quite the same thing as gratitude—although the two concepts share many common elements. Appreciation is a conscious and active expression that usually emanates out of the experience of gratitude. This doesn’t mean that all experiences of gratitude result in expressions of appreciation; in fact, you can feel gratitude in almost any given situation and not necessarily express anything externally. But, whenever you do express appreciation, it is almost always preceded by a strong feeling of gratitude.
Please check out my video to learn more about the value of appreciation:
If you start your New Year off with a conscious effort to express more appreciation, you will begin to see all kinds of improvements in all areas of your life. In fact, take the practice to a whole new level, and try to find something to actively appreciate in every situation—even the ones that might not be so pleasant. In truth, there is a gift in every circumstance, so try to find it. You will find your relationships improving dramatically, and you will feel the expansion in your own heart too!
I want you to know that I truly appreciate you and all you do. You are on an amazing path of growth, and I wish only the best for you. May you grow in value moment by moment as you continue to appreciate!
