In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways
Week Three: Appreciation
What we put in, we take away and in the labyrinth, it is as simple as walking in, through to realization and walking out with a little different realization. It isn’t always obvious, though there is always something that occurs, even if it seems like nothing at all happened, that is something.
To be heard, seen and acknowledged is a simple appreciation and acknowledgement of our contribution. It is a kindness to recognize the deeds of others for their service or additions. When we do we realize that each plays an integral part and that all efforts are appreciated.
Walk in with Praise
Step into praise and learn the benefit that takes over when extolling the virtues of another. To speak well of a fellow human is to speak well of our consideration for wellness in the world. It says much about the individual who can honestly venerate the deeds or consciousness of another for the sole purpose of affirming quality. Praise is a virtue to walk with today to find worth in another and acknowledge it in ourselves. We can admire, honor, affirm and hold in esteem others, yet when we can praise them and their efforts, we acknowledge with appreciation the feeling in ourselves
Walk out with Recognition
The worthy act of praise exalts the value of what it praises and raises the vibration of the praiser. It gives recognition of its quality, merits and characteristics that of high caliber and elevation that bring a sense of the feeling of appreciation. This recognition can also be a catalyst to raise the praise, so the two are well matched in their combined work of acknowledging higher attributes and raising esteemed value. In a world that wants to be heard, seen and witnessed, recognition works at a simple level, and with complexity to elevate the feeling of appreciation.
Praise to Recognition

Week Three Focus: Appreciation
In discovering the elements of gratitude, thanks is an expression we use to communicate our sense of what we hold gratitude for. Explore the ways Appreciation is felt this week on the labyrinth in daily walks, group facilitation, program creation, offerings, artwork, illustration and design, building canvas or permanent designs, books written or poetry created. However you find thanks as the path, on the path or of the path you are on… how is it expressed?
- Personal: consider the ways of your own personal adventures and use.
- Associations: contemplate the ways of use with friends, family, and relationships or other acquaintances.
- Environs: realize the community uses, organizations, landscapes encountered.
- Global: imagine the ways that what you do reaches others in the world environs.
