Why You Need to Be Thankful for Yourself and How to Do It?

 What do you do when you appreciate someone for what they have done?
Most likely, you would say, “Thank you”, or you would be nice, kind and courtesy towards the other person.
But how many times do we say “thank you” to ourselves? How many times do we give thanks to our body for functioning properly? Not many times I guess.

Self-appreciation is about turning the kindness you give to others inwards.

Instead of blaming yourself for making mistakes or forget to do things, self-appreciation is about saying “thank you” to yourself for all the things you have done but taken for granted.
Self-appreciation is not the same as self-esteem.

Self-appreciation is the process of appreciating yourself. Appreciating yourself is about being grateful for yourself. 

You can be:

Being self-appreciative is not the same as being egoistic.
Also, there’s nothing egoistic about self-appreciative. Some may think, “I can’t toot my own horn. I’ll be so conceited or arrogant. Praises and acknowledgement should come from someone else.”
But that isn’t true. Unlike self-esteem, which may have an element of egoism involved, self-appreciation is all about being kind to yourself.

When you appreciate yourself, you don’t enhance your self-image. You are just thankful.

Why You Need to Appreciate Yourself?

If you have done a great job, you don’t have to wait for others or a special day to acknowledge your effort. Why not appreciate yourself first for your effort?
Most of us let others determine if we are good enough or not. We let other people determine our worth and happiness. But appreciation doesn’t always come. Just because you put in time and effort in something, doesn’t mean that others will appreciate what you do.
What if no one appreciates what you have done? Does it mean that what you have done is worthless? Are you going to blame them for not being appreciative?
Instead of waiting or seeking approval from others, self-appreciation is a better choice. Because it’s something within our control. Furthermore, people are more likely to appreciate someone who appreciate themselves.

Don’t wait for other people to appreciate you.

another thought today.

Hi guys.
So am back and have been thinking about what's been going on around me and I said to myself, not everything is gonna work out for me, so what do I do when these things don’t work out for me? Am pretty sure you have walked into a store or even at the market and when you pick up an item and it don’t feel right with you_ you pick up another that suits your test right? it could even be a clothing, you see it and it didn’t fit on, you exchange it for the right one that fits perfect.
That is how you exchange things that don’t work for you to things that work better for you.  Now this same principle applies to your thinking. If you will exchange your " i cants" for "I can" thoughts and begin to say i can do whatever I wanna do in life because \God strengthens me, you see remarkable changes begin to happen. If you build into your character the thought that with God's help, you are able to do whatsoever you need …

Happy You!

How “Hope” Can Keep You Happy If You Do It Right“The very purpose of our life is happiness, which is sustained by hope.We have no guarantee about the future, but we exist in the hope of something better.Hope means keeping going, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ It brings inner strength, self-confidence, the ability to do what you do honestly, truthfully and transparently.” 
– Dalai Lama"
Now, hope can lead to anxiety! How?  when the things we hoped for and planned for sometimes do not come to pass as we have wished. Becoming fixed on a hope we have in our head, about how we believe our future will transpire, can become a real source of anxiety and suffering rather than happiness. Why? Because when the plans that we were confident would turn out the way we hoped doesn't play out ,we may find ourselves sinking into unhappiness, and/or anxiety. We may lose hope in hope.  Now the question is should we never make plans then? Of course not. We can and should make plans. But we should set future…
