Stop judging, start appreciating

As per the title ‘Stop judging, start appreciating’, off the top of your head, list ten items, things, people or experiences you appreciate as part of your life.

01. ____________________________________________________
02. ____________________________________________________
03. ____________________________________________________
04. ____________________________________________________
05. ____________________________________________________
06. ____________________________________________________
07. ____________________________________________________
08. ____________________________________________________
09. ____________________________________________________
10. ____________________________________________________

Now that you’ve created your list, how could you go about incorporating more gratitude and appreciation into your daily routine as opposed to judging everything as either ‘for you’ or ‘against you’?

Choosing to focus on the good things, however, does not mean we should ignore issues, challenges and problems. On the contrary, when we stop judging and start appreciating the good things we are able to use the positive feeling generated to tackle difficulties.

Wallowing in doom, gloom and despair can sap us of any inclination or desire to push forward with heartfelt projects. So, look at your list and begin to stop judging, start appreciating and enjoy the fact life consists of many things, all of which add something to our experience of it.
