Hi there!  Becky Kemp here and guess what!  I am coming down with a head cold.  You guys know what that feels like, when you start sneezing a lot and then your nose starts to run and then the aches and chills set in.  Well that is what I am dealing with, yet I am fine because I know it is just a little set back.  


Oftentimes it isn’t until we don’t feel well that we remember to appreciate the days that we do.  It is when something is no longer in our life that we start to regret not appreciating it before it is gone.  If we don’t have some negatives in our lives, we won’t appreciate the positive.  So as I write–I am mindful of how much I appreciate my health, my family, my life even when I am sick and on days I am healthy–I appreciate it all.  

The awesome thing about the word appreciate—is we each have the ability to put this word on daily despite what circumstances we find ourselves in.  I invite you to put on the power to “appreciate” today and everyday moving forward.  This word will change your life! This word has so much power!  

What we appreciate will be appreciated!  Where you put your focus determines your destiny.   As we put on the power word “appreciate” it keeps our focus on the good and allows it to expand.  Let us let go of self criticism and look how far we have come.  We are all becoming day by day—so lets become our truest self by appreciating our gifts and abilities and where we are today.  Let’s not just appreciate feeling good when we feel bad—let us focus on looking for the good in each day–everyday.

Let’s not just appreciate feeling good when we feel bad—let us focus on looking for the good in each day–everyday.

“Appreciation can make a day–even change a life.  Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.”  –Margaret Cousins

I invite you to put on “appreciation” for yourself first and then begin to appreciate others. As you do this you will begin to appreciate each experience in your life despite the outcome. You will begin to express appreciation to others and to yourself and as you do—your life will expand to become the one you always desired! I invite you to try! 

A quick way to begin to see the power found in words is to put on The ONE WORD WAY!  I share with you three additional words that will help you put on “appreciation” each day going forward.  Go to to get your FREE Ebook.

There will be days of gray–sickness and things we just don’t like yet—as we focus on the good—we will appreciate it and it will grow.
