Being Appreciative

May 9, 2011   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching  //  No Comments

After the fun of the Bank Holidays, and business people returned to work it may have given you chance to feel uncomfortable or very pleased. Uncomfortable with your lot in life, or appreciative.

I believe there is no wrong in recognising your discomfort – and voicing that – but use it to change what isn’t working for you. In other words, moaning for the sake of it really helps no-one, especially yourself!

Following on from that (which we could discuss in great length), is the thought that as so much news and information is now available to us, it’s easy, I think, to develop a notion of appreciation for all that is good in your life.

Right down to appreciating the ability for example, to walk freely in woods, by streams, on the beach without difficulties that many peoples are facing day to day that are truly life diminishing. It’s easy I think, to forget this appreciative element, that nourishes the soul and allows you the energy to give more generously of self to others.

Perhaps you could give yourself a thought at some point in your day, rushed, pushed, scheduled and so on as it is, to be appreciative of something/someone in your day, every day? Then watch for the riches that brings you, undeniable and priceless.
