Masterful Mindsets ~ The Little Things Give Life Magic
“Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to accomplish something big, that we fail to notice the little things that give life it’s magic.”
How often do you take the time to appreciate the magic in the little things? When was the last time you did something small for another person to brighten their day or noticed something small done for you? When was the last time you stopped to acknowledge the little things you’ve accomplished on your way to the big things?
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty easy to take for granted how important the little things in life really are. I’m guilty of doing it at times and I’m betting you are too.
So many people think that if they could just make something big happen then their lives would be fulfilled. Whether that is getting a promotion, finding love or some other great destiny they have planned for their lives. Now don’t get me wrong, those big things are awesome! And having goals to create the life you desire is always good. But what happens all too often is we focus so much on those big things that we forget to acknowledge and be thankful for the little things.
Without the little things, we would not enjoy the big things near as much. And I believe that if you do want to make big things happen in your life, you must first pay attention to the little things. It really is the little things what make life magical.
Maybe for you a little thing is a call to or from a close friend, a wagging tail from your dog when you come home, paying for the order of the person behind you in the coffee shop, splurging on your own caramel latte to celebrate getting a nagging and not so fun task completed or a warm breeze blowing on your face to dry your tears after you’ve been let down. Whatever those small things are, they make a difference in your life and they are the things to focus on in order to give you the positive energy you need to move forward.
As Thanksgiving has come to an end and we prepare for the rest of the holiday season, it is a wonderful opportunity for us to be thankful for the little things in life that are important.
My challenge to you is to spend some time reflecting on your life, focusing on the little things that make it better or bearable. Then have some fun making a list of those little things that make life magical for you. It is a great reminder of how important the little things truly are.
Be in gratitude as you write each one down. What are you thankful for? It may be as simply as a good hair day or a smile from your spouse that tells you they love you. What’s important is that you take the time to be aware, acknowledge and show gratitude for the little things around you that make life worthwhile.
By practicing this, soon you’ll begin to become more mindful of the little things that make life magical. And odds are, you just might realize that all those little things are actually the big things…
