Stop judging, start appreciating

September 15, 2019

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.

Or not. To offer your input on the notion of ‘Stop judging, start appreciating’, please leave a comment below.

Remembering yesterday for the benefit of today

November 4, 2018

Poster from the past

Without wallowing in the past or getting caught up in the revival scene, it can be valid on occasions to go about remembering yesterday for the benefit of today.

By ‘yesterday’ we may wish to look back beyond the last twenty-four hours to a period of time worthy of investigation and remembrance.

Our ‘Golden Age’ could be one in which we were engaged in challenging activities yet felt tremendously alive.

Then again there may be valuable input from recalling a moment in our personal history in which things were not so good. Remembering yesterday for the benefit of today would include taking insight and learning also from such negative moments in our personal history.

Making comparisons between ‘where we were’ and ‘where we are’ can open our eyes to our actual situation. Appreciating what we have nowadays, be it loved ones around us, possessions, career opportunities or whatever, may well be the result of a focused instance of remembering yesterday for the benefit of today.

Regardless of how you feel towards the issue of remembering yesterday for the benefit of today, thanks for taking a few moments to read this post.
