Appreciation

by Bill Mansell on November 24, 2009 | One Minute Motivators

Blind, deaf, and for many years speechless, Helen Keller said:

“Recently I asked a friend who had just returned from a long walk in the woods what she had observed. ‘Nothing in particular’ was the reply. How is it possible, I asked myself, to walk for an hour through the woods and see nothing worthy of note. I who cannot see, find hundreds of things to interest me through mere touch.

“I who am blind and deaf can give a word to those of you who can see. Use your eyes as if tomorrow you would be stricken blind. Hear the music of voices, the song of birds, the mighty strains of an orchestra as if you would be stricken deaf tomorrow. . . Smell the perfume of flowers, taste with relish each morsel as if tomorrow you could never smell and taste again. Glory in all the facts of pleasure and beauty which the world reveals to you.”

Success Tip: Consider what your world would be like if you could not see or hear. Now, look around, listen and enjoy. Appreciate. Take pleasure in the beauties that surround us.
