The economic definition of the word appreciation is : an increase in the value of an asset over time.
I love words. I feel like they give little clues.
When I appreciate something or someone I am using my energy of love. I am placing an increase in value on the object of my attention.
I like the fact that the economic definition states “over time”. This makes sense to me.
I cannot truly appreciate something unless I have had it’s opposite. So it takes time to place value on the object or asset. I need the time and the experience with it and without it to know it’s true value.
I am learning this about myself.
I have spent so long…many days that have added up to years..not appreciating or loving myself.
I have covered up my feelings with drugs, alcohol, relationships, jobs…you name it.
I am finally coming to see…it is all about the love of self. It is all the small decisions that I make that soothe my soul because I am loving me.
God’s grace has pulled me from hell on earth…to find me. For this I truly appreciate.
