Gratitude

Gratitude:I saw a video of George Lukas talking about the pursuit of Happiness. He said that when we have experienced pleasure from something, we will never experience the same intensity ever again unless we increase the quantity. 

That reminds me how the first two bits of something delicious feel divine but after that, if we pay attention, the pleasure is not the same. So let’s really take the time to savor the first two bites!

And what if, instead of looking for the same pleasure, we could wipe the slate clean, have no expectation of pleasure, and be surprised each time, a bit like an eighteen month old child discovering the world for the first time. 

I am grateful for the delicious moment I had of sitting in the sun and enjoying the sun’s kiss in my bare arms…

What else is possible?
