Embracing the Power of Acknowledgement: Lessons from My Time in Mauritius
Today, I wanted to share with you a remarkable experience I had during my time in Mauritius. It’s about something so simple yet incredibly powerful: the art of acknowledgment.
Let me take you back to those beautiful mornings on the island, where a walk on the beach was a daily ritual for me and my wife, Gwen. One thing that struck me profoundly was the genuine warmth and friendliness of the Mauritian people. Regardless of their nationality or background, everyone I encountered greeted me with a heartfelt “Bonjour.” It was a gesture that transcended cultures and communicated a sense of unity and happiness that resonated deeply.
Even among different nationalities, the exchange of greetings was a delightful mix of “Good morning” and “Bonjour.” The way people spoke and interacted made it easy to establish a connection and engage in conversation. A simple phrase like “Ça va?” became an invitation to share experiences and connect on a more personal level.
