Today I'd like to share with you some of the things I love about one of my favorite local restaurants that serves local, organic, vegan food… that actually tastes good.
It's called "Cafe Gratitude."
(Note: This email is NOT about Cafe Gratitude, no matter how much it appears to be, and no matter how awesome of a name that restaurant has…)
First of all, the entire menu is named creatively. Their "BLT" for example, is named "I am Extraordinary." The chocolate shake I always get is named, "I am eternally blissful."
Secondly, when your food is brought to the table, the names are spoken back to you. For example, when I receive my order it goes something like this:
"You are eternally blissful. You are extraordinary."
It sounds kind nice coming from another person.
Third, after you're done eating (assuming you've finished your whole meal), you'll see on the plate a simple question:
"What are you grateful for today?"
Since the food is tasty, usually the first thing that comes to mind is GOOD FOOD… in my belly.
The last thing I love about the restaurant that I'd like to share with you today is this…
The servers always ask a "Question of the Day" for further reflection. Sometimes the questions are relatively simple, other times it's a bit deeper and more difficult. No matter what it is, I always enjoy the experience there.
It has me wondering…
What if we applied just a few of these experiences to our daily lives?
How cool would it be if, every time you finished a meal, there was a message asking what you're grateful for?
Or what if our daily interactions with people included regular extraordinary compliments and acts of "seeing" one another?
With that in mind, here's a question of the day that they once asked me. Now I pass it on to you:
"What would you most like to be acknowledged for?"
Think about it. Feel it out. See what you discover.
Whatever your answer is to that question…
Go out and acknowledge -somebody else- for that! See what happens. :)<
