My blog post today was about Gratitude, although it was disguised as a comment about Time.

Does Time Really Speed Up?
A Wall Street Journal reader question to Dan Ariely caught my attention. Here it is:
How can I enjoy life more? Every year, time seems to go
by faster. Months rush by, and years just seem to disappear. Is there a reason for this, or is the memory of time passing more slowly when we were children just an illusion? —Gail
Ariely attributes this phenomenon to the relative lack of new experiences and suggests a “new app that will encourage us to try out new experiences, point out things we’ve never done, recommend dishes we’ve never tasted and suggest places we’ve never been.”
Maybe you’re telling yourself that Dan Ariely is a famous behavioral economist from Duke University, so he must know what he’s talking about. But ask yourself, “Does this really sound like the right solution?”
What if we stopped and savored the past…and, especially, savored the moment? What if we asked ourselves:
What am I grateful for? or…Who do I want to thank? or… What do I appreciate?
Behavioral economist Dan Ariely answers reader questions about feeling the years rushing by and feeling feeling great from taking garlic.
