Hopefully, you are returning this week after practicing your daily 5 minutes meditation on Being Grateful. If you are new, jump right in; there is not a right or wrong way to practice reflection. This 3-part series is simply a prompted meditation designed to help you establish a practice of acknowledging the positive energy and influences in our lives. So here we go. Still your mind, know your heart, and celebrate the cycle of giving and receiving in which you have participated.
MEDITATION 2: APPRECIATION
The meaning of appreciation is the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something. In other words, appreciation relates to being, not doing. It is about celebrating who other people are and how they show up.
We all tend to critically assess ourselves and others. Similar to the physician's model, we focus on identifying the problem or the flaw and fail to mention the more lengthy list of good things.
