"Real appreciation is about appreciating everyone around you. Some of us have loved ones here with us, some loved ones are gone. When being around those here, appreciate them. When thinking about those you've lost, appreciate the fact that you had them in your life for that time...
What about the people in your life that get on your nerves, or test your patience? Appreicate that they are in your life for a reason. Maybe they are here to teach you something about yourself. Maybe they are here to teach you tolerance. Maybe they are here, and just plain bother you. If so, appreciate the fact that you are who you are, and you are not them!"
There is always something to appreciate.
Look for someone or something to appreciate... you may be surprised how much you find.
