All the small things.
Celebrate the small.
Society places much emphasis and accomplishment on the bigger things in life, the things that are dominating, protruding, the things that stand out a mile off and proclaim look at me and you do because quite frankly you can't miss them!
Sadly, not as much attention is lavished on the littler things, these things often get discarded, ignored or over looked, which is a shame, as they are as important as the big things, if not more important. The big things are big only because they are a combination of the small things.
For example, any large multinational, globally recognised brand and billion dollar making company is only such because of the hard work, time and effort given of its employees. The little people that work tirelessly and endlessly for a modest wadge, keeping everything running and progressing. Thus providing the continuing income for those higher up the chain, allowing them to live their privileged life of opulence. I think it's fair to say, that without them it wouldn't be anywhere near as successful.
Small is special and spectacular and we should celebrate the small!
Small is significant.
Pennies, because lots of pennies make pounds and lots of pounds make rich people.
The first step, because every great journey starts, with a single step.
An acorn, because from little acorns mighty oak trees grow.
Atoms, the microscopic matter, that is the make up of the entire universe.
A single cell, multiplying and growing untill you have a complex living, breathing being
A split second, a lot can happen in less then a blink of an eye, a split second decision can save a life or be just enough time to break a world record.
Whats your joy, quota?
How many things are you grateful for?
Little drop's of happiness.
I am going to share with you something I do nearly everyday, it never fails to lift my spirits and make me happy. Write on the top of a piece of paper or on your computer 'whats my joy?' then list as many things as you can that bring you joy and that you are grateful for. You may struggle to find much at first, especially if you are having a particularly bad day. However before you know it you will be thankful for everything.
Keep your list and read it frequently, reinforcing your feelings of gratitude. Or delete it, throw it away and start new ones, trying each time to find different reasons to be grateful and add more things to appreciate then your previous list.
