I have heard people voice the importance of maintaining gratitude. When challenges stack up, it can be easy to lose perspective. But there is something extraordinary about meditating on the positive…
- of our personal circumstances and our own personal attributes
- of our relatives, colleagues and neighbours
- of lots and lots of other things
Breathing appreciation, allowing it to be the air we breathe, the atmosphere we live in, has an effect on everywhere we go, and all the people we mix with. Tell people, tell them what you find admirable about them. Please do it. You have the power with your words to life their hearts.
I have found recently that when the air is filled with appreciation and gratitude – love grows. People are warmed. Tempers are calmed. Humour is able to effuse. The joy of life – such a key ingredient is appreciation!
