“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.” -Henry Drummond
We live in a world inflated and brimming over with visions, goals, and objectives of every type. They proliferate our professional and personal worlds. We are constantly driven to do more, be more, achieve more…in every aspect of our life.
And there is no end in site…
Even before we can conquer the plethora of goals or objectives we find ourselves engaged in attaining…we are already scouring the horizon for the next big thing…the next target to set our sites on. A new mission to drive us ever onward and forward.
Small wins, big wins…just make sure they are wins.
Now don’t get me wrong…I don’t have any problems with wins. Very often, they are the one thing that drives us. Small or big, victories often give us the strength and impetus to move forward…to overcome the difficulties we are faced with.
The problem is when all we ever look for is the wins…the small moments often get overlooked, passed over. And while the wins are what we work for, what we try to achieve…the small moments are often what we remember. They stick with us…often changing our lives, forever.
The reason we can’t overlook the small moments…
They usually happen when we need them most. A word of praise. A hug. A smile. An encouraging look. It is in those moments that our hearts are touched…changed. The small moments may be seen as the little things…but, it is best we remember that the littlest things often make the biggest difference.
“Fill your life with as many moments and experiences of joy and passion as you humanly can. Start with one experience and build on it.” -Marcia Wieder
