Appreciation runs in two directions.
It almost goes without saying that we all love to be appreciated.
What would the remainder of your day be like if:
- You did a “little something” around the house and your spouse said how much he appreciated it?
- One of your children called just to say he loves you and he’s glad you’re his mom?
- You were weeding your yard and noticed some weeds growing in your neighbor’s yard so you decided to pull a few of them. A short while later, there’s a knock on your door. It’s your neighbor, just saying “thank you”?
- You notice the person behind you in the grocery store line has only a couple things. You let him go before you. He sincerely wishes you a wonderful day?
Obviously, you’d feel great. It’s because you were appreciated.
We cannot make anyone else appreciate us. Yet, we sure can take the time to appreciate someone else.
Take a moment each day to appreciate a simple act.
