I appreciate new things in my life.

When I look around at all of the people and resources in my life I am grateful. I feel blessed because I have special people in my life that care about me and whom I care for as well. The people in my life are treasures to me.

I have all the necessities in life including a safe space, food, and clothing. Beyond the necessities I enjoy extra things in my life including the gift of technology, books, and hobbies that bring me great enjoyment.

There will always be people who have more stuff than I, but stuff is just stuff. Instead of dwelling on what I might not have, I focus on the wonderful gifts I do have and I appreciate them even more.

I have a fulfilling life full of people and property that bring great value to me. By keeping my focus on the many gifts and joys in my life, I am able to appreciate new things at a much deeper level.

Today I look at all the people and all the things in my life and I individually appreciate each one. I cherish the good in my life and I am thankful. I am blessed with a beautiful life and, today, I show my gratitude.
