The Art of Appreciation

You know how in literally every self-help book they talk about being grateful and appreciating what you have?  NEWSFLASH: they’re right.


You want the key to happiness?  Gratitude and appreciation.


In this day and age it is soooo easy to get caught up in superficialities and materialism – you forget what really matters.  I’m not just saying this because I live in SoCal, it can happen anywhere.  People are always striving for more – can’t help that greed runs through our human blood!  Hell, I catch myself all the time desiring more.  As I always like to say, “there’s always room for improvement”.  And you know what?


There is!  You should always be striving for better and not letting life get stagnant.  HOWEVER, the only time you have is NOW.  This exact moment in time.  Anddddd it’s gone.  Wild.  Don’t get so caught up in your goals and desires that you forget to live in the moment.  Because where you are RIGHT NOW is somewhere you used to fantasize about in the past.


As Miley Cyrus once said, “it’s all about the climb”.  And you know what?  IT IS!  Life is just a constant journey full of never-ending experiences.  So get off your phone and LIVE LIFE!


I challenge you to not just think of all the things you’re grateful for and all the goals you’ve accomplished, but to WRITE THEM DOWN!  AND I challenge you to text or call at least five people today and tell them how much you appreciate and are grateful for them.  People are so underappreciated in this world and a simple, kind message goes a long way, trust.


So, get on out there and enjoy the beautiful world!
