Appreciate and Enjoy!

I appreciate the choices I make.
I trust myself to know what is good for me.
I believe in myself and enjoy my life.
I have an abundance of what I value.

Appreciate and Enjoy!

When you enjoy something, appreciate it fully.
When you appreciate someone, enjoy them fully.
Fill your life with what fulfills and enlivens you.
Your energy will attract more of the same.

Likewise, when you dislike something, let it go.
When you have distaste for something, simply lay it aside.
There is an inner guide in you that shows you what is good for you.
So listen and respect what is right and true and good for you.

Children and adults are often taught to try everything.
People of all ages are encouraged to do things others see as good.
When we learn at young ages not to do what we know inside, we begin to doubt ourselves.
When we are respected for what we feel and know, we learn to trust ourselves.

How do we learn to appreciate and enjoy?
Ask yourself what feels valuable to you.
We learn by doing what feels good.
We learn through appreciation.
We learn with experimentation.
We learn what is good for us.
We learn over time and trial.
We learn because we can.
We learn by watching.

When there is forcing or pressure, we tend to resist.
When there is punishment, we take in the negativity.
Our judgments keep us stuck in dislike and fear.
Our experiences teach us to avoid and say clear.

Perhaps the inner child is the best guide.
When we feel happy and free, we can see.
When we know we can choose, we take time.
When we trust our own conscience, we can truly enjoy.

Appreciation is a fine art.
We can take time to savor.
We learn to really enjoy what is.
We discover more and learn to value.

To appreciate is to increase value.
To appreciate is to receive enjoyment.
To appreciate is to take in the goodness.
To appreciate is to give gratitude and have more.

Appreciate and enjoy life.
Enjoy and appreciate your Self.
You are the Gift of appreciation and joy.
Give and receive the Gift you Are today.

Loving you,

 Every time you say, "I appreciate that. I really like that. I applaud that. I acknowledge the value in that." Every time you do that, you spend some of your Energy, and it is the spending of the Energy that creates a vacuum, so to speak, or an attraction, so to speak, that draws more and more and more and more.
