Appreciate #healing

How can we enjoy life more?
Do you always see a flaw?
Compulsively shop at any store?
Or yawn widely finding it a bore?

Appreciate every tiny thing!
For smiles of contentment it can bring.

Makes our heart truly sing
gives dark clouds of depression the fling!

 Always look for the good,
see the humour is you would
make your motto “appreciation of all”
whatever happens make it a ball!

Why wallow and wait
get involved, be passionate!
This life is too brief
resolve now to turn over a new leaf

Finally walk that mile,
Share a warm smile,
Give a kind word,
Let others know they are heard.

 Spring clean your cupboards
and imagine it’s your mind
blow those cobwebs away and see what you find?
Think of random ways to be kind

This has a ripple effect on all around
as we open to appreciation
others get drawn in, in fascination.
Our moods will lift and life will lighten!

  1. I am just glad i have enough time to read your posts which i missed..and this one hit me the most. …it is “appreciation” persee that made me get through tough times. I see and appreciate the good in even the worst situation and when we all do that the good will eventually unfold and become the best….for everything happens really for a reason. We may not be able to see that immediately but slowly it will unravel itself only if we keep om believing and appreciating the good around. Yes, the best is there even in the worst situation..

  2. The line with ‘ripple effect’ reminded me of the Butterfly Effect: In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state

    So that one small smile and good deed that one shares can bloom exponentially! Start the day by smiling at yourself in the mirror and keep passing that smile on!

  3. Yes, loads of lovely lines here! I particularly love the “Let others know they are heard”. It’s a mirror to one I followed long ago about letting people know they were or are seen… You’re wonderful, ck.

  4. Words to breath in, write on our hearts, and live out…’twill help to make 2019 an amazing, good year!!! Thank you, Kate!!! 🙂
    “Appreciate every tiny thing”…Yes!!! 🙂 When we do that we focus on the plenty we are fortunate to have (and enjoy) and we beciome joyful…AND THEN we do not get caught up in society’s theme of “you need this and that and the other thing to be happy”. 🙂
    HUGS, no bugs or lugs, or rugs or zugs, just hugs!!! 😉 😀 😛

  5. I Love this! I think I”m going to save it. I’ve worked so deliberately at overcoming depression over the last year and I really feel I got myself to a good place (or at least much better), so I really resonate with these words.

  6. I like the message in your poem, particularly in the third line. Seeing the humor is key for me. I don’t think it would be possible for me to get through even the mildest hardship unless I was able to laugh about it. I don’t know how people born without a sense of humor can cope. I guess they just punch a lot of walls or whatever. 🙂
