I’m not the first person to say (and write) about the importance of appreciation. For me, with all the lessons I’ve learned during my life, it’s very urgent to learn how to value and appreciate every little moment.

Everything that is valued remains in my memory forever. The things that are not appreciated; the moments that are overshadowed by fear, by insecurities or that were merely made to reach a goal, is like it didn’t really happen.

In the everyday rush, it is easy to do things mechanically: eat, shower, work, etc. But if these things play such a relevant role in my life why should I do them in a rushed way?

Appreciating every action, those who surround me, the sun, the flowers, the colors, the scents… So many things can be the focus of my attention and my appreciation.

If at all times I keep in mind something to value (yes, because is always possible to do so) I will for sure create more things to value.

I create things that I’m focused on, that being what I’m going to seed through my thoughts, actions and emotions, and what I’m going to harvest in the future (sometimes almost instantly).

The way I deal with my life leads me to a place; I can tread a path of resistance or I can, otherwise, follow a path of appreciation and value.
