Tom Carr has worked with many people regarding their individual spiritual journeys. As he began assisting an elderly woman, Myra Redmon, who was experiencing problems with her marriage, he noticed upshots based upon the unique way she interacted with other people. He began documenting her method of creatively expressing appreciation.
Utilizing Myra's method of effectively putting appreciation into words can be life-changing. She referred to the chocolate as a simple compliment expressing the value of another person. The words we use can enhance the connection we have with others and act as a catalyst for their own self-improvement. Myra realized that when we are reminded of our value, we feel better. Myra referred to the key as what the other person does with the chocolate. How does he or she utilize the compliment for his or her benefit? How does that person expand upon the talent which was complimented upon?
Let The Chocolate and the Key: Something Beautiful That You Can Do help you improve your life and the lives of others. Set up your intention and engage in a daily practice to verbally express your appreciation, and notice the changes you see in those around you.
