How often do you do this…?

August 11th of my book: ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time‘.

Take the opportunity today to fully appreciate something or someone.

When was the last time you really stopped and appreciated your car or your washing machine or your kettle or your computer or your TV? Think about it, how often do we find ourselves shouting and maybe swearing at things when they don’t work how they should. My poor computer definitely comes in for a verbal bashing sometimes!

But how often do you appreciate it when it works perfectly – which is probably most of the time?

Our washing machine went kaput the other day which was a pain because then we had to do the whole searching for a replacement. It took days of hunting websites and magazines and shops before we finally chose one – meanwhile the washing was piling up. It was when we started talking with the sales reps in one store that we realised how well our old machine had done in lasting 12 years. We just take stuff for granted don’t we?

Now consider if there is someONE that you don’t appreciate anywhere near as much as you should. And if you do, do you tell them? If the answer to that is no, or not enough, then change that today.

Let them know they are appreciated

  1. I do try and tell people how worthy they are…but, that comes from growth and learning the ways of my Lord…To treat others the way we would like to be treated…so easy…but, sometimes we find it hard to do or just don’t take the time…I’m glad I have come to the age and knowledge to understand the importance of this…

  2. Great point Stu…I better appreciate my washer as it is now twelve years old 🙂
