Appreciation is the basis for holidays, but it's something that can and should be done every day. Think of each holiday and what it means. Then, look around you and appreciate all the good that is in your life. Your family, friends, possessions, where you live. If you focus on what is good, more good will come. If you focus on what is lacking, soon, more will be lacking. Anything that is focused on increases, so the more you appreciate what you have, the more you will have to appreciate!
