The small things ARE the big things.
Occasions like Memorial Day always get me thinking about the topics of meaning and purpose—as in, I begin to ask myself, does what I’m doing right now have meaning?
Does it serve a greater purpose?
Am I living with gratitude for the gifts I have in this life?
Are my choices, words and behaviors in line with my big WHY?
In our sometimes messy, busy worlds of day-to-day living, it can seem like the small things take over our existence and the large things seem too far off to grasp or achieve.
But the small things are the large things–just in smaller doses.
What we do in the short run (as in each day) creates how we live, think, feel and experience things in the long run.
That’s why little habits, small positive changes, paying attention to the details of how we eat, move and talk to ourselves (which truly shapes our actions) matter.
Because, over time, the small stuff turns into the big stuff.
Choose well with the small stuff and the big stuff turns out better.
Never doubt the power of small, incremental changes over time.
“Add up the short runs, though, and you’re left with the long run. It’s going to be the long run a lot longer than the short run will last.”
