The last few days we spoke about appreciating life’s simple pleasures and the not so simple pleasures. But what about all the amazing ordinary things we take for granted?
Do you have any idea how incredible it is that you can hear someone’s voice from 800 miles away over a phone line? Do you realize just how mind-boggling it is that you can watch your favorite sports team score on your cell phone? Do you have any idea how frigging amazing it is that someone can put a piece of paper with images on it into a machine and it can pop out an exact copy on your fax machine? (I still don’t believe this one!)
You can get somewhere in a five hour plane ride that used to take ten years. Do you realize I wrote this blog post sitting in my office in Miami Beach, and you’re reading it a few minutes later wherever in the world you are?
We all take waaay too much for granted. When we begin to appreciate how amazing some of these ordinary daily things really are, it can bring a whole new dimension of prosperity to our life.
So what ordinary things can you appreciate today?
