Each of us has our own ideas of what success is and how we plan on reaching for our own set of stars in this vast universe. It is in striving to reach those goals that we must pay attention to the quiet details which add small pieces to the puzzle of our life.
If we expect great things to happen without paying attention to any of the details then how do we reach our goals?
It is appreciating the quiet details in our lives that build us up to reach our goals whether it be finishing a novel or striving to run your first marathon. It is these humming details that keep us inspired and moving each day to achieve our dreams.
I overheard someone talking in my local coffee shop that it is “a bore to talk about the little things.” *eye roll*
I believe there is so much beauty in the little details that build our day. It may be the warm cup of coffee that you sip in the morning, the laughter of your children, or the pleasant chatter of good friends.
All of these things are small beautiful gifts which should be accepted with joy as they each make up a piece of our lives.
I don’t believe it is boring to appreciate what you have and share the little things in life that make your day. I think it is pretentious to assume that the only life worth living is discussing the droll of Chomsky or some philosophical argument of Kant. It is when you turn your nose up at everyone else who is trying to be the best that they can be is when you miss out on the best things in life.
The little things in life are what build us up to appreciate what we have and guide us to the next stop on our life path. They are what makes us who we are and bring smiles to most of our days.
