Just as your body enjoys praise and appreciation, so does your soul. When you say words of love about yourself, this part of you shines extra brightly. When you speak this way about yourself to others, your soul warms and radiates- and this energy nurtures everybody.
Your appreciation acknowledges that everyone is equally lovable. Unlike bragging, there's no one-upmanship in love or appreciation (which is a common confusion).
When someone gives you a compliment, your soul longs to accept this gift, just as your body enjoys receiving sustenance from food or drink,. Love and appreciation are the nutrients that feed your soul.
When others praise or acknowledge you today, accept the gift with openhearted gratitude. Don't deflect kind words- accept them. Enjoy the nourishment that appreciation brings you.
Wishing you Love and Harmony,
