the small stuff

What excites you?
What makes your heart skip a beat? Catches your breath?
Makes your knees tremble?

You’ll want to stop and think for a moment to make sure you’re response is truly profound. It’s tough to answer because most of our lives are spent in the mundane. We think we can find gratitude only in the great landmarks that define our lives. But it is not your new house, your white wedding, or the dream job.

Rather than the big punctuations, our greatest gifts are the small details hidden within. The small stuff. These moments are often overlooked and discarded, so it takes vigilance to notice and them. When we stop waiting to be grateful exclusively for life’s grandest moments, we will find shortcuts to happiness in our daily lives.
