The Magic of Appreciation


Of all the attitudes we can acquire, surely the Attitude of Gratitude is the most important and by far most life changing.
Zig Ziglar


The best way to know God is to love many things.
Vincent Van Gogh


If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life.
Abraham Hicks


Appreciation is a magic charm for me. When I catch myself getting caught up in the stress of life I stop for a moment and look around for something to appreciate, to be grateful for. When I’m able to hold that focus for even one minute I begin to feel relief taking hold. A deep breath comes naturally and I become aware that whatever was making me nuts wasn’t really such a big deal in the whole scheme of things. Simple, appreciative thoughts change everything!

    Thinking about your blessings for the day is definitely a good way to boost your mood. When I am faced with stress and pressure, I often give myself time to breathe and think about what I’m thankful for too.

    So true! I used to keep a gratitude journal, and it was so helpful for this. This reminds me that I need to start that again!
