Appreciation, A Gift To Give


Sharing your appreciation is so much bigger than just “being nice”. When someone feels cared for and appreciated, they feel like their efforts were worth it, they feel like they are valued for who they are, and they feel like their life is worth living for. And that is the power of appreciation.

When we look for and find the things we appreciate about others and let them know,

that is the biggest gift, for them and for us.



Feeling genuinely appreciated lifts people up. It makes us feel safe and energized, freeing us to continue giving our best. Not receiving appreciation can drain and divert our energy from the things we love doing and sharing. It's not the expectations, but more the human need to feel valued, loved, and respected. Similarly, in the workplace, when employees are appreciated it creates a positive work environment and strengthens the relationships between the employees and leaders. In addition, when you acknowledge someone’s value and express that recognition, you are able to forge deeper, fulfilling, and more trusting connections. In fact, Paul J. Zak, a professor at Claremont Graduate University, said that “The neuroscience shows that recognition has the largest effect on trust when it occurs immediately after a goal has been met, when it comes from peers, and when it’s tangible, unexpected, personal, and public”.


All of this in turn benefits you too! Actively finding ways to appreciate people helps change your mindset into one that is positive and finds the good in the world around them.

Making you happier and more fulfilled with your life!


Always picking people apart blinds us from seeing the strength it took to speak up about the abuse, the hard work it took to improve after their failure, the initiative and creativity it took to innovate and publicize an idea, the kindness it took for them to cook a meal for you and many other brilliant ideas, extra efforts, and meaningful gestures the people around us make.
