Active appreciation

Take something for granted and you diminish its value. Take it for granted long enough and you could lose it altogether.

That’s because whatever you take for granted, you fail to make use of. Your inattention leaves it to crumble into disrepair.

But that doesn’t have to happen. Because you can make it your business to appreciate.

Appreciation illuminates and gives you access to existing value. Your appreciation informs, inspires and encourages you to build on that value.

Replace resentment and apathy with gratitude and active appreciation. Connect with the boundless abundance that already exists.

Think of all you can appreciate, and act on those thoughts. Continually rediscover and give your energy to the good that exists in your world and in your life.

— Ralph Marston
