appreciation 2

I was thinking about how the value of our house appreciated over the years. In spite of several poor economic downturns and other factors, it is worth more now than when we bought it, for which we are very grateful.

However, my car is worth less because it has depreciated, a fact I anticipated but still don’t enjoy.

Appreciation is an increase in the value of a specific object or idea. When I appreciate a book, it increases in value to me and possibly to others if I share my appreciation. If I appreciate my wife, then she increases in value to me and hopefully my appreciation will help her increase in the value she holds for herself.

I decided to be very conscious of what I appreciate as it will increase the value of my focus. I appreciate my ability to write and improve in my skills daily. I appreciate my good health. I appreciate a great marriage. I appreciate my good friends. I guess I could say I appreciate my life.

How about you? What do you appreciate?

I you appreciate life hit like.
