“Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.”
Margaret Cousins 1905-1996, Writer
There is magic when you express appreciation in your life. The most valuable things in life don’t cost anything. Grateful little acts of love in any form can have a lasting impact on the recipient. If someone supported you during a difficult time, let them know how important their presence was. If you have succeeded in life because someone believed in your talents, what better way to acknowledge their part than by saying thank you. If someone’s kindness changed the trajectory of your day, what better way to return the favor by expressing your own kind gratitude to do the same. There are so many ways to express appreciation, the sky is the limit. Hugs, smiles, cards, notes, flowers, showing up, music, an expression of love, (did I say hugs???) There are so many people who walk through your days. The ones who make a difference imprint on your heart their own special brand of love that changes you for the better. You are who you are today because of the love that was shared. Appreciation is the best way to acknowledge those gifts from the universe and keep them coming! There is magic when you tell another that they are valued beyond belief. There is magic when you connect with another from a place of esteem and recognition of their worth in your life. There is magic in sharing the greatness offered through willingly putting into words what you gratefully feel inside. When you listen to your heart and respond in kind to another, the positive reverberations will impact another in ways you may never know. How magnificent both the giver and the receiver will feel for appreciation is an act of service to them both. If you put into actions or words all the love in your heart, how much better this place we live in will be.
