|Moving at the Pace of Appreciation|
I got this from a friend of mine who is the president of an ad agency a few days ago in his weekly email to friends and clients – as true as it is in his world of glitz and glammer, it just as true in ours…
“Whatever pace you move at, try moving at the pace of appreciation”.
My wife once said to me, “Honey, you need to move at the pace of appreciation.” Her quote, not mine. In that moment, I forced myself to slow down, way down, to see what was in front of me and it was my amazing wife. She looked different to me in slow motion. For the moment, I saw past my busyness and was at total peace downshifting into a gear where I could see “clearly,” which inherently is the pace of appreciation. It’s a slower place than we’re used to, but the peace, productivity, perspectives and power that reside there make it worth the investment. Move at the pace of appreciation today.
Can you try to take his advice for just tomorrow? I did today and it has been amazing how much different life looks, the wonderment in all of it. So many things go by unnoticed – unappreciated. Life can be so much richer than we experience, so much deeper than our daily business allows. Drink deeply from the blessings of a sunset, the smell of a rose, and the beauty of those you love.
