Many years ago I was taking a course and in this course I learned one skill that has changed my life and the way I look at all people, places and things in my world.

What was the skill?  THE SKILL OF APPRECIATION

I tend to be a person who sees the negative in life before I can see the positive and I had spent much of my life complaining about everything that I possibly could complain about before I could come up with something that would work for me that I could not find anything to complain about or criticize.

When the instructor came in and proceeded to explain the power there is in appreciation I was floored……. So simple and yet so difficult to see what I appreciate when I have always looked for the opposite in life.

He started out by showing us how we can appreciate what people have to say. What they have done and let them know it.  At that time in my life I ran an organization with 18 employees and I was so busy that I did not have time to let everyone know that I liked what they were doing, so I just said thank you to them as I was running out the door……..

In my life when someone has said thank you to me I have two common responses that come to mind:

  • Thank you for what?
  • What do you want from me now?

As soon as I learned to use the word appreciate my life changed, the life of the people I worked with changed and my world was a much happier place for me to live in.

Through this life changing lesson I learned:

  • Everyone likes to be validated
  • Appreciation happens mostly at the time it is necessary to appreciate.
  • It is very easy to say “I appreciate you”, “I appreciate all that you do”,” I appreciate how you are when you………….. “
  •  When you use it after the time that you appreciated what they have done, it is an easy way to offer validation without the other person being suspicious!

And

  • Most importantly…..It sure is easy to appreciate myself and the skills that I have and give myself silent credit for them…

For example when I say that I appreciate my ability to talk with people and listen to them…..this is simple, however, if I say Thank you for my ability to talk with people and listen to them…..WHO AM I THANKING……I can accept the personal appreciation, however, saying thank you always indicates for me that I am giving thanks for something that is outside of me.

Appreciation allows me to be inside of me and offering this special gift to me from me!

Peace, love, light, blessings and appreciation

The human capacity to care for others isn’t something trivial or something to be taken for granted. Rather, it is something we should cherish. Compassion is a marvel of human nature, a precious inner resource, and the foundation of our well-being and the harmony of our societies. If we seek happiness for ourselves, we should practice compassion: and if we seek happiness for others, we should also practice compassion.

WORDS OF WISDOM

I have many questions that are difficult to sort. Where do I begin?

Always dear one begin in the moment that you are now in.

Everything is going well in your life and the reason that you can not see that all is well in your life is because this is new territory for you.

What is the reason for you to have to create issues that do not exist?  Are we perhaps bored?

Always see the moment that you are in without clouding it with unrealistic issues that are a creation of yours for you and by you. When you put it all together, go with the flow, all flows, when you create issues, it will create another flow which is what you choose not to have in your life, which is the flow of issues.  You  tend to want to stop the flow by allowing the issues to stop you. You are accountable to you for you, and you will do what needs to be done in the moment provided that you keep your head from over riding what you know is in your heart.

All of life is like a riddle, especially when you concentrate on what you perceive others need and want. Life is not about others it is about you. You have learned that this is selfish, and living your life is the most selfish thing that you will ever do, how else can you learn, grow and become all that you know that you are. Should you continue to sit in the background waiting for someone else to give you permission to be all that you are that is being overly mannerly and will stop not only your process, but the the process of all others who are requiring this information now.

Those who are to be with you are, those who are not to be with you aren’t and life is just that simple. Be and all will be with you or not.

Go in peace, love and light and know that we will be with you because we are you.

Peace, love and light are with you because they are you on this day of discovering you.
