~~On Appreciation~~


Sometimes I feel frustrated because I do not receive the kind of or the level of appreciation from the sources from whom I want appreciation. This is actually self-inflicted frustration because it comes from a lack of simple acceptance.

Some people simply don't appreciate you. Some people don't appreciate what you do. Some people don't appreciate what you do for the reasons you do it. (Usually from a place of giving and love.)

If we simply accept that, we can get appreciation from other sources, with less frustration.

Maybe it's okay...and even preferrable to accept appreciation from where you can get it.

Puppy appreciation is as authentic as appreciation comes!
