Those who know me, know that I like to openly appreciate stuff. If I like a song, I’ll turn it up; if something is hilarious, I’ll laugh out loud to the point of snorting; and if the food I’m putting in my mouth is good, I’ll actually mmmmm and nom nom nom. Sometimes I secretly sneak a glance at my shoes and let out a knowing smile, just so they know how cool they are and how much they mean to me.
Do you remember back in the day when you’d freshly fallen in love and were in the honeymoon period and how lovely you were to each other? The just generally being nice for the sweet nothingness of love; expressions of gratitude and love were openly physical and verbal and oozing joy. How awesome was that? I remember after being with Mr T for nigh on a decade and he told me that he didn’t think he didn’t say he loved me often enough, so his goal was to let me know more often. What a sweet cheeks! He always said that I made him want to be a better man. Cue the hearts melting J
I like to use that as a reminder of how amazing it is to express your love, appreciation and gratitude; to others, yourself, your food and your shoes. Inanimate objects have feelings too!
So when it comes to appreciation, how do you let yours shine through?
