The best things in life are yours, if you can appreciate them.

Dale Carnegie

May 5th - appreciation

Appreciate what you have, where you are and who you re with in this moment.

Tony Clark

Appreciation is the key to a happy life.  Ive learned to enjoy life and to be happy with what I have.  To me its a waste of time chasing more of everything. Life is a journey to be enjoyed each moment.  It’s about loving what we have.  

We all have something to appreciate.  Things can always be worse.  Sometimes less is more when you gain enjoyment from it.  Sometimes the more you were after, won’t bring enjoyment at all.

Life is full of delightful treasures, if we take a moment to appreciate them.  I call them ahhh moments, and Ive learned how to create them for myself.  

Oprah Winfrey

Happiness doesn’t come from having more and more material things. It comes in appreciating what we already have.

I try to appreciate all of life's small and large blessings. Today is such. Just breathing alone should be enough to be thankful for.
Love ya, From a beautiful day,

Certainly, things could always be worse.
This reminds me of a favorite quote, "If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."

The simple things are often the best appreciated! It doesn't cost money for so many of them and they are so enjoyable if we allow ourselves to look for them.
