Thinking Through Thankfulness
Think about any item you see around you. How many people were involved in making that? One? Ten? A hundred? A thousand?
Now imagine that it’s something that is important to you in some way. Would you be willing to thank all those people who helped make what you feel is special?
In this video about a man who decided to thank everyone who helped make it possible for him to have a cup of coffee, he ended up learning something very important about how to be happy.
Try talking to a friend about how many people you can identify who are part of making something you love.
Then try thanking at least some of those people. Did you learn something different from what the guy in the video learned?
