Yesterday, we looked at the importance of being intentional about noticing things about your relationships and other people that you appreciate. Over time, relationships can fall into routines, so it becomes even more important to dig deeper to discover new levels of appreciation in your relationships.
Dig deeper to discover new things to treasure in your relationships. Look beyond the things the other person does and get to know their inner thoughts and feelings, as well as their past experiences. Instead of just appreciating what they do for you and others, reflect on how that person has overcome past challenges in their life to make them the person they are today. Acknowledge the things about who they are that make them so important to you–and be sure to let them know. Deep-level appreciation has the power to transform and strengthen even the strongest, healthiest relationships!
