April 2022 Calendar and Happy Thought About Appreciation
HAPPINESS will never come to those who don’t
APPRECIATE what they already have.
This month I thought I’d talk about appreciation. I feel like it’s a good time for me to focus on this and would love to take you along on the journey with me. My best friend spent 6 weeks in the hospital Jan-Feb and she passed away early February. I spent 2 months moping, shed many tears and in a real rut. I understand that that is what grieving can be about but it was tugging at my happiness. I know my friend wouldn’t want me to continually be unhappy. Didn’t Dr Seuss say,
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
To help me with the grieving process I’m going to focus on appreciation. The definition if appreciate is: a feeling or expression of admiration, approval, or gratitude. Such thoughts as, “I am grateful to have had such a food friend and appreciate all the good times we had together and focus on the happy memories. I believe this will help me to find happiness in the situation.
