In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways
Week Three: Appreciation
Adding more appreciation to our days because it feels good to do so can be a slow and gradual building that reflects upon what is important and matters. If we find our day realizing the moments that bring out our best, we’ll be less likely to examine or fitting into the ways of others. It becomes an effective use of our time and an active opening to more of what we have available to use.
Feeling is magnified when we look at the power of the words we use. When we walk with those words into a natural spiraled concentration that winds the way the labyrinth does, we amplify our focus. Appreciation rises in what we treasure and hold invaluable.
Treasured to Invaluable
Life’s purpose is to discover what we’re all about, what abilities we possess and the ways in which we can utilize, grow and add them to the world. To know our value is to know what our treasures are. As we walk the labyrinth in self discovery, we see metaphors of our life showing up on the paths before us. It is a way to exercise ability and explore potential capabilities. They are our gifts and our treasures to mine and excavate, like the gems of sunken treasure we can find ways to bring them to the surface. As we realize the gifts within ourselves, we can more easily and readily see them in others. The more we treasure, the more we appreciate.
Walk out as Invaluable
Stepping into something we treasure, our senses heighten, anticipation is felt as a wiggle within the body and our outlook rises with curiosity. The value we create for our well being is immense as our mind is relaxed and open, our body receptive and our soul is affirmed knowing we are activating our higher abilities. The feeling is invaluable, as no price can be put on elevating well being with wonder. To explore or expand what we can do and be, brings a usefulness to life that make our life worthwhile. Embracing our treasures is life fulfilling and calls our invaluable priceless nature to light and appreciation in sight.

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.
