Appreciation is the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something. There are so many things I am appreciative of. Where do I start?

My family come quickly to mind. Of course, my wife and daughters sit right at the top of the list of things I appreciate. One of my greatest pleasures is spending time with my family.

I am fortunate to be wealthy enough to afford what I need, as well as what I desire. I have a well-paid job, a beautiful house to live in, and the means to pursue my interests and hobbies. I never go without anything, and I have more than I need.

I live in a safe place, able to move about freely. I enjoy a cosmopolitan lifestyle, which comes with a multicultural society full of great friends and superb food.

Appreciation is not just an acknowledgement of achievement or success. It is a sentiment that makes us human. To appreciate the little things in life and count your blessings along the way is the best way to live a fulfilling and complete life.
