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.
