A strange gift

Co-workers of mine are often sending around links to different Ted Talks. While I was watching one on design I saw a link of this video.

I think that this was an interesting video (minus the long ad at the end). An interesting perspective.

I shared this with my mom, who survived this gift, just in a different form. I had a feeling that she could relate. I know she looks at things differently, I imagine I would too. While Stacey says she ‘wouldn’t change her experience’ because it made her outlook positively change, I have a feeling that a lot of people would rather not have this gift, but just learn to embrace life differently. But then again, I have not been so gifted.

Anyone else who has had this gift, or something like it, have an opinion on this video? Can you relate to Stacey? Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
