It is a beautiful morning and I can see seven mountain peaks from my sister’s deck. Two days ago I saw Crater Lake one of the natural wonders of the world. It was socked in clouds but we still got a glimpse of the incredible blue water of that very deep and pristine lake. Oregon like many states is filled with amazingly beautiful places. Yesterday we were at Smith Rocks, a rock climber’s mecca in this part of the world. Today we will go up on Mt Hood and enjoy the views and see the famous Timberline Lodge built after the Depression as a WPA project by the CCC. The craftsmanship of this creation is something to appreciate. The hike we took overlooked and incredible canyon and there were wildflowers everywhere. Nature is gorgeous.
There is so much to appreciate about the natural and human made beauty of our world. Appreciating beauty always makes me feel good. Appreciating life works great too because it puts a positive and grateful spin on my experiences. I hope you get lots of opportunities to appreciate much in your life? If you have health, love, food to eat, decent place to live, work you enjoy and a good income then you are rich in many ways.
When you appreciate what you have, you open yourself to receive even more. When you focus on what is not ok you tend to have a life that is less than you want. Appreciation can be a powerful way to help you create the life you want.
Ending you day appreciating all that unfolded can make your sleep relaxed and restful. Appreciating those you love will keep your heart open and will make it easy for others to you love you. If you go through the day appreciating what happens and those you interact with, you will have an extraordinary life. Try appreciation out, take it for a test drive today and see what kind of mileage you can get. I predict, you will like the results.
