The power of appreciation

Written by on November 27, 2014 in Attract Your Reality - 15 Comments

It’s November again: the month that Americans celebrate that wonderful holiday of too much food: Thanksgiving.

But Thanksgiving isn’t just about turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie… And I don’t mean that you need mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, and pecan pie as well. I mean that the real purpose of Thanksgiving is, of course, that of giving thanks.

This year will be one of the first for me since moving to the UK that I won’t be able to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner as I do every year. I have a course I’m doing all this week and a difficult exam that I have to prepare for to be held tomorrow, so I won’t really have a chance to prepare anything either day. But I do have things to be grateful for this month (as usual as we all do) and I would never miss a chance to speak about the power of appreciation on this key day when much of America demonstrates the extent of their appreciation, for the people that helped make our country what it is, by significantly over-indulging on a big turkey dinner.

A thought came to me as I was finishing my class today. The thought was a response to a friend who complained to me once again about his unhappy long-term relationship which he claims he is “bored with” but doesn’t make any effort to change or finish.

Being”in love” is a choice that we make every day, just like being happy. That’s not to say that we can love anyone at any time. On the contrary, love is one part timing and one part finding that ideal mate. But when we do love, we should love for real. Not this wishy washy “maybe yes, maybe no, not sure…” kind of love that seems to be eroding our current reality; but for real.

What makes things work over time isn’t diversity or some magic ingredient for keeping the passion always on fire, but is as simple as gratitude. So if you are no longer grateful to be with the woman or man that you are with, find the one that you can be fully grateful for. So that being with her or him initially makes you want to thank the creator, or the universe, or God, or whatever you like to call it for sending her or him to you. Then find a way to make all of the time that you two have together time filled with appreciation for this person that you are with.

That is what will make the real difference between being “bored” with someone and being truly fulfilled with them. Love is a key aspect of happiness. We only get bored with what we never learned to value. Learn how to appreciate all that you have been gifted with in your life and you will never be bored or unhappy again. 🙂
