This morning I listened to this podcast an interview between Cal Fussman and David Griffen.
On the surface his story isn't one that I'd normally seek out. It's very sports oriented. I don't really care all that much about sports. But I was intrigued by the title and I'm glad I listened. Because you know you're on to a good thing when the ideas resonate despite the context.
I got a lot of things out of it, but one thing it prompted me to think about in particular was gratitude. It's one of those words that gets thrown around a lot these days. That's because it's so valuable.
It's my gratitude for my position in life that has pushed me to be bolder of late. I've had some close friends and family go through some pretty tough times over the past 5 years. I haven't had anything much to worry about at all. Sometimes that makes me feel guilty, or like I'm waiting for something to go awry. I'm going to be grateful and make the most of it instead.
