In this 20th Mincha Moment, writer, lecturer, activist, advocate and co-creator of Ms. Magazine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin reveals why gratitude is such an essential component in her life. The loss of her mother at an early age and breast cancer have done nothing to dampen her sense of gratitude. In fact, if anything, they have helped her realize the value of each and every moment.
This is a project of Mincha Moment, which encourages you to take a moment of gratitude each and every day. Mincha moment (MIN-khuh, with the “kh” like the “ch” in “Bach” or “loch”) refers to a moment in the afternoon- 2:30 pm is what we’ve been using- when you stop whatever you’re doing, look around and acknowledge to yourself, how truly grateful you are. If 2:30 pm doesn’t work for you, no problem. Choose another time, but stick to it. Better yet, keep 2:30 pm and pick an additional moment as well. Unlike specials in the supermarket, decongestants or hot fudge sundaes, there’s no limit to how many mincha moments you can have in a day. Because, as Aldous Huxley wrote, "Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted."
