A Love Affair With Life
By Steve Goodier
Italian actor Roberto Benigni has been described as a charming
and effusive man who, in his joy over winning the 1998 Academy Award for best
actor for his performance in the film "Life Is Beautiful," danced over the tops
of chairs and leaped up on stage. With that in mind, listen to what he says on
the subject of gratitude: "It's a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate
gratitude with moderation."
Gratitude with moderation! Doesn't that describe how many of us
We rarely show gratitude for each miraculous new day.
We wait too long to tell others what they mean to us.
We're more excited about acquiring something new than taking
inventory of all we already have.
The word that too often describes our gratitude is "moderate."
You know the adage: "In all things, moderation," but I've never heard, "In
gratitude, moderation." There should NEVER be moderation in showing gratitude!
Author Sarah Ban Breathnach says, "Every time we remember to say
'thank you,' we experience nothing less than heaven on earth."
Imagine living every day
demonstrating gratitude with abandon. Imagine becoming excessive in
thanksgiving. Every day
