What You Take For Granted

Did you know that you don’t know what you take for granted?  You know why?  You take it for granted – that’s why.  When I first heard this, I thought that this concept was too simple and almost stupid, but it has profound implications.

Taking something for granted – whatever it might be – minimizes the importance and value of what ever it is that you take for granted.  And as such, you aren’t mindful of it – because you take it for granted.

I know.  Simple – but profound – for me anyway.
