They say, “small things impress small minds,” but I disagree.
It takes a curious mind to notice the small things, to marvel at intricacies, to notice the things everyone else seems to take for granted.
“Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff,” they say. But the big stuff is made up of the small stuff.
Big things are complicated and difficult to tackle. But if we can straighten out a few of the small things, wouldn’t that change the big thing that it’s a part of?
I think I’ll keep being impressed by the little things; the tiny flowers in the desert, the micro conversations on the way to the grocery store, the cute game my son found that he thought I’d enjoy.
I think I’ll keep doing the small things; washing the dishes, sending a text, touching my husband as I walk by.
All those little things do make up the whole. And when I look back on my whole life, I’ll be able to see the big picture I made with all those tiny dots of color.
