So part of the HeartMath stuff I’ve been reading about and practicing revolves around appreciating someone or something around you or in your past. That’s not something that comes easy for me even with many great people and positive events in my present and past. I don’t think I’m in the minority on that one either.

But I have found one thing for certain. Any neutral or positive social interaction I have, be it a hello with a co-worker or even a stranger, or a pleasant meal with a dear friend makes the whole appreciation process so much easier. And it makes those interactions where there is tension, momentary or otherwise, or other negative impact all the more fleeting and insignificant.

So my lesson for today: people rule.
