Below is my post, APPRECIATING WHAT YOU HAVE. Also see my SPECIAL MESSAGE TO MY READERS about changes in my blog this year.
Do the NEEDS AND WANTS exercise from last week’s post. Write why you appreciate what you have from that list – from either the needs side or the wants side.
If ideas come into your mind about things you don’t yet have but wish you had, push those thoughts out of your mind. For now, just think about appreciating what you do have, not wishing for more.
If you have trouble concentrating on what you have and not thinking about what you wish for, say to yourself, “How can I be happy with more, if I can’t be happy with what I have?” Or, remind yourself that if you wait to be happy until all is just right in your world, happiness will forever escape you.
When concentrating on what you have and appreciate, ask yourself if you have anything extra that you could share with others.
If the children you care about are old enough, share some of your appreciations with them. Ask them if they want to share something they appreciate.
