Appreciation and acknowledgment. Two things I liked to affirm at the end of my workshops or classes. To each individual participant I’d offer gratitude for one thing I’d gained from them and acknowledgment of their journey by offering a wish.
As we welcome in a New Year, I thought this exercise would adapt well here. So:
- Choose 1 – 3 bloggers that you wish to appreciate and acknowledge. ( I’ll demonstrate here.). 2. State your gratitude for that person by choosing one specific way in which they have touched your life. 3. State a wish or gift that you would like to give them in return. 4. Make sure to create a link so others can visit.
Let me demonstrate with a blogger whose absence has me concerned:
To Olga at Stuff and What if… , I thank you for the gift of beauty that your creativity always expresses. If I could give you one thing, it would be healing for your pain. I miss you and care about you.
And to another, who doesn’t participate here, but always takes time to comment:
To Elizabeth Gauffreau, I thank you for your critical perception, so important to me in developing my craft. I wish for you the energy and inspiration to complete your next work.
And to Jazz at Steps and Pauses whom I have had the pleasure to get know one-on-one, I thank for the priceless gift of your friendship, and I wish for you unhindered travel and deepening wisdom.
Excited to read your posts. To participate, all you have to do is publish a post and link back here, or leave a comment below.
(Please note: I’ve made a couple of changes to the challenge: a) removed the number (who cares, right?) and b) will not be doing the Sunday wrap up. I will continue to comment on individual posts and for this challenge will offer my own thank you and wish to all who participate.)
Get the idea! Let’s start the New Year off with appreciation and acknowledgment.
