It’s always the little things that make the biggest impact… and it’s always the little things that I neglect.
I often feel so caught up in the never ending cycles of laundry, homework and dinners that I forget to notice the small things. I often feel stretched so thin that I forget that pulling back a little is the best way to avoid a complete catastrophe. Life often whirrs past me so fast that I fail to notice the moments when something small could make a big difference.
I want to do better.
I want to notice, and take time, and help us all do better.
I want to…
Sit for a moment.
Smile… even when I feel like crap.
Hold hands as much as possible.
Tell fart jokes.
Take a breath.
Give cow kisses.
Read, read, read.
Draw faces on their sandwich wrappers.
Remember what it was like to be a kid
Notice the little things, and remark on them
Make time, even if it is only 30 seconds.
Remember… they are still small
What would you add to my list?
What do you want to do more of or be better at?
