The Little Things

Sometimes the little, everyday, things turn out to be much bigger than they seem.

There were a lot of things today that I could have focused on, most of them positive. None of them felt quite right. So I took some time to think about it, to try to figure out what was sitting in the back of my mind.

Listening to some of my favorite music on the drive home pointed me in the right direction. What solidified the thoughts in my mind though was reading some posts and responses online.

I realized how rarely I think about things like seeing, hearing, walking, and talking. They’re everyday activities that most of us just do, without ever really thinking about it. How incredible is it that we can do these things so casually? How beautiful is it that our bodies are designed to work this way?

Take a few seconds today, tomorrow, or next week to just appreciate the things you can do every day without ever actively thinking about them.
