Clearly, someone who is appreciative enjoys a good life. When he smells flowers, he savors them. When he looks at beautiful sights, he experiences joy. He takes pleasure from the simple things in life, and has an unending stream of things to bring him satisfaction. In short, his life is exalted.
And that’s all fine and well, but I just don’t seem to feel that way. It’s not that I don’t want to feel appreciation — I just don’t. Some people are very appreciative. Some people aren’t. So how can I change? How can I adopt a way of looking at things that is so foreign to me that it almost goes against my very nature?
This Shmuz focuses on adopting a perspective of appreciation, and developing the Gratitude Attitude.
