Gratitude vs. Appreciation: The BIG difference
I’m sure you heard a lot about being grateful to be, do and have whatever you want.
It’s great to practice gratitude. And if you’ve done so; Awesome!

It also means that unconsciously you are always reminded about the bad things that happened until you overcame them.
Appreciation means you are in the now and there is no hint of worry, anger you let go of, or the past in general.
Appreciation is NOW, with no doubt or negative taste.
