Jayson’s post, Being Thankful, got me thinking. Then I ran across this article by Maryling Yu, “The Most Important Skill In Life (It’s Not What You Think)“. I thought, “There’s something to this, and it’s worth me taking a few minutes to think about what this means to me”.
Jayson’s thoughts, Maryling Yu’s article and so many life experiences (many in hindsight) made me realize that I kind of knew this. I cannot, however, claim to have thought concretely about the concept of Being Thankful in quite this fashion. While I have been trying to improve my ownership of how I feel about life, on any given day, in any given situation, I should also be working on what I do in this context. The two are closely related, but quite different.
