Thank you, more please
A gratitude practice
Five things to share:
A gratitude practice: THANK YOU, MORE PLEASE.
Annie: About a year ago, I was in this cab, and the cab driver – this Indian guy, started telling me… he started telling me all sorts of stuff. He was just looking at me in the rear view mirror and he said, Bliss. Bliss is your birthright. And I was like, Uh…45th and Madison? And he said, You have great potential in this lifetime. The key to your life is gratitude. You do not give enough thanks. And I said, Well, how do I do that? And he said, Simple! Say ‘thank you.’ And I said, Well, when? And he said, All the time! Like now. And he said that after I say ‘thank you,’ I should say, ‘more please’
Sam: Wait… thank you, more please?
Annie: Yeah! That with gratitude, the universe is eternally abundant. So, I’ve been giving gratitude a shot. Thank you more please. Thank you more please. Thank you more please.
A good way to fill the space: Thank you more please. Thank you more please. Thank you more please.
A quote I want to share with you:
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
— Muhammad Ali
Let the possibilities surprise and delight you.
The next time you are ready to go online, ask yourself whether you would be having more fun reading a book or working on your next project. Also ask yourself: What has the Internet done for me lately?
(A reader’s submission: Thank you, thank you, thank you, more please)
A question for you: What are you thankful for? And, what more can you ask for? Or, what has the Internet done for you lately?
That’s all for this week!
