“Enjoy the little things in life… for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.” –Unknown
Many people push things aside because they are the “little things”. Yes some of them might be but some of them might have turned into much bigger things. If you always push the little things aside they turn into a pile of little things.
If anyone has ever pushed the little things aside like: sport games that your kids were involved in, listening to a friend when they asked or watching a movie with a friend. Yes they may be little events but they do mean a lot to the ones that you pushed aside. No one likes to be pushed aside and forgotten. You also have to remember that something that may be little to you, may be big to someone else in their life.
If a friend did want to talk to you about something it could have been something big in their life that they needed you to listen to, but because you pushed them aside you didn’t hear about the news until everyone else knew. Little things are big things that are still growing. You just have to pay attention to them.
So next time a friend calls and wants to talk take the time because it might turn into something big. Or the next time your kids ask you to do something with them do it because to them it will be a big deal. Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?
