Quote of the Week

“Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is neccessary.”  – Margaret Cousins


by Steve Straus

Appreciation is powerful energy.

Recall a time when someone expressed appreciation for you or for something you did. If you’re like most of us, the appreciation, expressed, felt pretty good.

Expression is the key. When you go beyond thinking about, and even feeling appreciation to a conscious expression of it, there is a powerful impact.

The wonderful thing is — the impact is on you as well as them! You expand your life when you live in, and frequently share, appreciation to and for the people and situations in your life.

Appreciation is easy to do. It only needs your intention to do it.
