Inner Growth Word of the Day: Acknowledge
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (v.) 3 a. to express gratitude or obligation for. 3 b. to take notice of. 3 c.to make known the receipt of.
Acknowledge in a sentence: When you acknowledge something, it is no longer hidden from your awareness, which means you can work with it even if that means only knowing it exists.
Acknowledge in action: Noticing your habits in certain circumstances is to acknowledge them.
Acknowledge and inner growth: To acknowledge something is a great help to your inner growth because it accompanies the awareness component of who you are in and out, which allow you to pursue inner growth thanks to active knowledge of those things. Only when you see something fully, which means seeing it with your perspective and life filter so that you may understand and resonate with it, can you pursue inner growth from the core.
Acknowledge and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I acknowledge something that is going on within me? When did I start to acknowledge my habits and behaviors? When I acknowledge my feelings towards life what do I see? Why is it important to acknowledge things? Who has influenced how I acknowledge things and the things I acknowledge? What does it mean to me to acknowledge something?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with acknowledge at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list think of something you’ve acknowledged that has affected your life in the most positive way. Write about your experience using the words from your list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about when you acknowledge something related to you and your inner self. Notice what types of feelings arise and where they come from, as well as how they navigate throughout you. When you’re ready let thoughts come in too and see how your emotions change, if they shift in where they stem from and go.
