Week Three: Appreciation
The content of appreciation is broad in its reach and can continue to increase the more it is adopted, even from a curious place of research or inquiry. The little things of annoyance dissolve as the importance of the feeling that energetically broadens in scope. Our breathing changes and slows filling up more and releasing with completeness for a rejuvenating restoration.
Realizing the effects we can appreciate how thoughts are more deeply comprehended, the somatic response of the body’s independent autonomy and the internal waves of vibration that rouse the soul. With appreciation we are improved and in response we applaud the effort.
Improved to Applauded
The first improvement in observing improvement is that there is no obligation to improve. This is merely a look at the idea of improvement and what occurs as we improve and because we do so. Change is inevitable and the choice that represents itself is one of improvement or decay. Though what if our look at life wasn’t so harsh and we appreciated the improvements that we do because they feel compelling in an honorable way and are just the right thing to do to make a good difference for ourselves or for others? When we walk to simply observe the value in the improvements we see in the world and the ones we create, appreciation rises.
Walk out as Applauded
What brings us to applaud? As a compliment to another for an effort of greater magnitude, we acknowledge with a symbol of appreciation in our applause. Whether a singular clap or a standing ovation, applause is a universal concept of appreciation for what we find acceptable at a level of pleasing and purposeful. It says we see in another a great value of appreciative respect, cherished capacity or a grander love and admiration. Noticing improvements in our environs and self, we may wish to appreciate with applause, though what if we walked in with applause?

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.
