Today I Appreciate….

  • Christmas Lights – Last night we were driving back from Saratoga… about 1 1/2 hr drive – and we passed many house with Christmas lights… Some were simple, some elegant, some filled with all kinds of blown up characters, and some more colorful than a kaleidoscope!

As we pass those houses – I always think “Thank You” – Thank You for getting out there and doing all this decorating which brings joy to so many people. 🙂

What do you appreciate today?

I appreciate today’s post very much – what a lovely thing to take that extra second to offer thanks for all those joyous lights

So today I appreciate the reminder to slow down and take the time to appreciate the things I really love about this holiday season

I appreciate the little & not-so-little reminders I’ve had of my abundance over the past several days/week

I appreciate those reminders that my worrying is unnecessary and the opportunity to relax that comes from releasing worrisome thoughts

I appreciate time alone to think, day dream and veg out. I love to be around people, but solitude is also quite precious.

I appreciate that I have completed my holiday preparations and can sit back and enjoy the remainder of the holiday. I allowed myself to get caught up in planning and executing (!) my holiday prep and became rather grumpy. Now that I am done, I can contemplate having a more peaceful season next year!

I appreciate the basic priviledge of doing pretty much whatever I want, in the context of the boundaries our society has placed on us. I think I am developing a more “free” attitude and with practice, practice, practice I can live without the worlds’ concerns sucking the life and hope out of me.

I just found this site today. What a great idea to write about. 🙂

Today I appreciate everyone in the world. The people I know, the people I love, the people I will never meet, the people who I’ve bumped into and didn’t even notice. I appreciate the little things we do that teach each other life lessons: the good and the bad lessons. As I go about my life, I watch, listen and learn from the people around me. We’re all different so that means we all have something to learn from one another.

Hi Sydney

It is always good to *see* you here….
Yes – Take the time to appreciate (period) As there are always (all ways) things around us that we can appreciate – We get to choose where we put our focus!

Big Hugs,
