Appreciate and Enjoy!

It is with appreciation that we increase our Good.
It is with gratitude that we enhance our relationships.
It is with praise that we inspire and encourage.
It is with affirming words that we make a difference.

For those who cannot be grateful, they will feel lacking.
For those who will not express “Thanks”, they will not receive favor.
For those who do not give praise, they will not know appreciation.
For those who do not offer positive words, they will not benefit.

What is given is received.
What we give to others is given to ourselves.
Where we cannot fully love and appreciate, we do not experience abundant love and appreciation.
It is true that the world reflects what is within me and you.

To fully love, respect, trust and appreciate oneself is the key to love for others.
To fully contribute to living your best is essential to giving your best to others.
To fully honoring and affirming the Good in yourself opens heart and mind to fully loving others.
To fully listen and learn how to love yourself and live your purpose is to give your best to others.

When we deny ourselves, we are withholding our best from others. 
When we judge others, we fear being judged.
When we withhold love from others, we feel we are not loved well.
When we shut down our naturally loving nature, we may experience depression, depletion, anger or fear.

Life is a direct mirror, a reflection of what we are projecting from within.
Life gives us feedback about how we are treating ourselves and others.
Life shows us where we are seeing ourselves separate and unwilling.
Life is the best and most objective barometer to how we are not giving our best.

When we love, trust, respect and appreciate ourselves, we easily love, trust, respect and appreciate others.
Where to judge ourselves, we will judge others and feel judged.
When we forgive our lack of appreciation for ourselves and others, we open fully to gratitude and joy.
When we are willing to open the door to see the essential Good in everyone, life is safe, fun and easy.

What will it take to be grateful?
Be grateful for the air, the sun and the rain.
Appreciate the beauty of nature and the bounty of the Earth.
Enjoy and bless all the good in your life.

When you are open-minded, and give thanks fully and freely, life becomes truly enjoyable.
When you are willing to forgive your judgments, opinions and limiting beliefs, life is abundant.
When you are free of fearful thoughts of limitation, lack and littleness, you will feel happy and free.
When you are generous with your gratitude for the people, places and possibilities of life, you are at home.

Life is good and getting better with every grateful thought and words and deed.
So thankful for knowing and loving YOU!
