Okay. Not gonna drop any truth bombs here. Just a simple reminder. Something we would all do well to keep in mind, especially in this peculiar age that seemingly forces us to be busier and busier, to the point that many often forget to, or even how to “live.”
Savor the small stuff. The things that at first glance may seem minuscule and insignificant.
A joke that never gets old. The smile of a stranger. The five dollar bill you found in your back pocket. Sharing a meal with an old friend. A late night walk under the stars. A tickle fight with your child. A random cuddle by your lover. Laughter. Silence. Peace.
There are an overwhelming number of things in this world to keep us busy, stressed, distracted, lonely and broken. However, if we only take a step back to breathe, and take stock of the little things happening all around us, we find that there are also plenty of things to bring us joy, calm, healing and purpose. Savoring the small is a great way to bring us back in touch with reality, and break free of the slug through everyday life.
At the risk of being terribly cliche, I find that appreciating the small things is one of the most important things we can do. For as I get older, I realize that these things do indeed often turn out to be the big things, and I believe you’ll find that to be the case as well.
