Notice the Small Things
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. ~ Mother Teresa
It’s a rainy cold day and I’ve bundled up on the couch, so it’s a good time to talk about noticing the small things. As we grudgingly roll out of bed and blast into our daily routine, commute, and start our work day, it is all too easy to do this in a haze; after all it’s just a another day. But tomorrow, is another day you’re alive, another day that this magic thing that is life is occurring and we should be thankful and enjoy it. We need to find the joy in the standard and the routine for that is the majority of our time. One way to do that is notice the small things. Take a second to return the smile of someone you encounter, notice the sunrise/sunset during your commute, or take a moment to see the new hairstyle someone is wearing in your office.
Noticing these things may not do anything in themselves to increase your happiness, but may increase the happiness of others, which in the end will increase yours. So have a happy day my friends, take your time, remember to breathe, stay positive and notice the small things. ~ Rev Kane
Do not consider any act of kindness insignificant, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face. ~ Mohammed
