A simple act of appreciation means that you value, regard highly, praise, admire , respect , treasure something/someone enough to make it heard/visible in words or actions.
It shows that you have a spirit of humility and compassion, and you know when to appreciate and what to.
Anything or anyone worthy of praise , should be appreciated, let not your tongue cut off what they rightfully deserve.
Appreciation is never a fake act. What might we refer as fake appreciation is over blown flattery.
I have often come across people who lack the ability to appreciate others.
Appreciating others does not make you less important, it makes an impression that you aren’t bitter.
Is it so difficult to say two words of kindness to make someone know how you value what they do, their acts, their works, their words, can be anything .
How many times do we admire nature and are filled with wonder?
Do we ever look up and tell God , that HE is indeed an Amazing Creator ?
That His plan for us is so beautiful?
That His love for us is so deeply satisfying?
How often do we appreciate our mother’s food ? her arduous work keeping our home together? her love for always prioritizing us – her children?
How often do we appreciate our Dad for his dedication towards us ?
How often do we appreciate our siblings’ best qualities without spite ?
How often do we look at our best friend, and thank them, for their presence?
How often do we appreciate a work of art, creativity, words or any other work done ?
It is put together by someone, someone took efforts, it did help you in some way, or may be of no benefit to you , yet you took a moment to admire, does it hurt to put your admiration into words ?
If you are super beautiful or talented and filled with so much pride, you often can’t stand when others – the one’s you tag as simpletons outstanding you.
Why the bitterness? If they can appreciate your beauty, the least you could do is return the favor with kind truthful words of appreciation.
Being honest with your praise does not hurt your soul but perhaps your ego.
Appreciating or praising often is the way to water the garden of goodness in you. You can see for yourself when you learn to be more appreciative of life and people, the small difference it makes has a butterfly effect.
Small ripples make great changes.
There is power in Praise. We know that. The more we praise God , the more we see our life change for better. Do not restrict yourself to God alone. Praise God, and His creations, that also includes your-own-self . See the ripple effect of kind words and actions to God, people around and you.
Remember, if they who appreciate turn to be as bitter as your non appreciative tongue, there will remain no one someday, to appreciate what was once your ace but now the reason for your spite.
