Appreciate the Heck Out of Him

I have to say it.  I LOOOOOOVE appreciating men.  Seriously.  It is like a drug. I am compulsive about it. When I appreciate them and see their faces light up, it is like elixir for my soul.

Why am I so into appreciating men, specifically?  Well, because I love them and I do really appreciate what they bring into my life.

Although I am perfectly capable of feeling like a hot and sexy piece of ass all on my own, I love that men contribute to that feeling in me all day.  Sometimes it is with their words and sometimes it is just that they provide the Masculine backdrop against which my inner Feminine flourishes.

I love that they are bigger and stronger and choose to be gentle and take care of me.

I love that they can lead the way in one instance and fall asleep with their head on a woman’s chest in a state of complete surrender in the next.

Even more, I think they are incredibly brave creatures for taking on the wild waters of a woman’s heart and mind.  They may not always be perfect or successful at it, but as a whole they keep on coming in the face potential failure and heartache.

For these reasons, I choose to APPRECIATE THE HECK OUT OF MEN and support them every chance I get.

Sometimes I appreciate them in my head, or with a smile.  Other times it is complimenting a man on his shirt, hair cut or new glasses.  It is always simple and a gift that is always well-received.

Do you want to know what a very pleasant side-effect of appreciating the heck out of a man?  A properly appreciated man loves to serve.  In your presence he feels like a man and acts accordingly.  Not a bad deal, is it?

I am very well taken care of by the men in my world and they feel like a MEN around me.  I know this because they tell me so.  I am humbled that I can contribute to their lives in such a way.

    Jennifer…It is nice to read this blog and know that you are sincere in your feelings about men. I feel the same way about women. Where would we be without our opposites? Life would be soooo boring 🙂 It was fun working with you at PECI, and it is fun reading about your thoughts and what you are doing now. God Bless.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I have no idea what it is, but telling a man “Thank you!”, when he has done something good for you makes them somehow bigger and more relaxed. Doesn’t it just amaze you how strong they are? I mean physically strong, lifting and carrying bags you can hardly lift, doing things that are so incredibly hard and leave me totally depleted – they just flourish! He goes out, chops a sh.tload of firewood, takes down a few branches of an oak and takes care a few more things and is ready for a long and exhausting tumble in the sack LOL I would need to rest for a day after any of these things!

    “I think they are incredibly brave creatures for taking on the wild waters of a woman’s heart and mind.” Liked your wording, lliked your unambivalent wholehearted appreciation of men. As a person who had sisters around me, and a dad who was busy, men have been a whole experience to get to know. Appreciate that one told me recently, boldly, he was glad to see me, and said honoring things on my answering machine.. It takes courage.

    I’m with you Jennifer on this. I love appreciating men and believe that everybody, not only men feels better and want to contribute more when they are felt appreciated.
