So many times, we make goals lists, have resolutions for a new year and ideas for big things we can do in our lives that will make all the difference. We can easily become consumed with the massive changes that would be so impressive the big issues that seem to take most of our focus & daily energy.
In the process of trying to make big changes…or just trying to deal with life’s challenges, don’t forget the little things. The things that really matter. The things that make a small difference day by day – to not only ourselves but others, too.
A small compliment, taking 30 seconds to really listen to your child or spouse – these are little things that add up to making a huge difference. They take very small investments over the course of time and the end result is something beautiful that we don’t typically consider.
In the long run, the little things matter as much as the big stuff. You might even say they’re the threads that hold the fabric of our lives together.
