[As you might know by now, I’m on my 365 Day Journey in Expressing Gratitude! Maybe you wanna join me?]
What I am grateful for today?
Day 10: I’ve finally understood the difference between appreciation and gratitude! There is a distinctive vibrational difference in using these two words: When someone is talking about something they’re grateful for in this moment usually they are speaking of some difficulty that they have overcome for which they are grateful but the difficulty is dominant in the vibration.
Think about this: I’m grateful that I no longer work there, I’m grateful that I’m no longer married to that person, I’m grateful that I’ve overcome this difficulty …
And how sounds this?
When you use the word appreciation, it’s not: I appreciate not living with that person anymore ~ it’s usually: I’m so appreciative of the life I’m living.
You get the distinction? It’s a big distinction. ~ Abraham Hicks
Therefore I change the label of my challenge in Expressing Gratitude into Expressing Appreciation ~ and I like it a lot better! Woohoo!
