2. It's the little things that matter
Vincent van Gogh said, “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together”.
It really is true, isn't it? The little things that lead to happiness, success, joy, and fulfillment are simple and usually easy to do. Yet how many of us do it daily? Or realize the importance of it?
They can be as simple as getting up in the morning and choosing to be positive, respecting the time of others by showing up on time, saying thank you, counting to ten and holding your tongue when feeling angry. Looking for the good in everyone you meet and work with, or as simple as choosing a different response in the moment.
Whenever you are faced with a choice, you can choose a positive action or a negative one. Remember, it's the simple actions, repeated over time, that will determine the life you lead.
During tough times it is easier than ever to complain, magnifying what you don’t want and creating more of it, because “misery loves company”.
Instead, make the decision to be a positive light that shines brightly.
If we want happiness, and peace, and quiet conscience, we need to learn the little lessons, the small services, the continuing kindnesses, the habitual acts of honesty, and appreciation. "We don't stumble over mountains." We stumble over small things mostly.
Remember, we remember the moments in life not the day.
Start enjoying the little things in life for one day when you look back, you will realize that they were the big things.
