These show up in my emails from time to time. The guys name is Jerry Del Colliano. You can google him. I kinda like this one. I may give it a try....
I discovered a Mayo Clinic physician who shared the most powerful example of why we never again want to be so complacent about taking things for granted.
His patient who had bladder cancer just wanted to be able to use the bathroom like everyone else. That simple. Because of his condition, an ordinary function that most of us don’t even think twice about became an object of appreciation.
We’ve heard “you’ll appreciate me when I am gone”.
Why do people never appreciate what they have until they lose it?
It’s human nature but we can do better.
This powerful approach breeds gratitude for even common every day things and recognizes appreciation for people we tend to ignore.
For some, taking time to appreciate at three strategic times a day will be more gratitude than they’ve expressed in weeks or months.
