pulpitI stumbled across a video of a teacher talking about the importance of appreciation. Watching, I felt preached at.

Then my husband came in. He was eager to tell me how grateful he was for all the blessing in his and our life. I felt inspired by his heartfelt appreciation. Funny how it works.

Now, I could have started this post by telling you that great teachers show more than they tell. Great teachers give advice sparingly, and they favor giving you experiences (for example by sharing stories) so you can draw your own conclusions. 

But I chose a different approach. I didn't want you to feel preached at. I didn't want good advice to go bad.
