“The older I get,the more I’m conscious of ways very small things can make a change in the world. Tiny little things, but the world is made up of tiny matters,isn’t it?”
This blog post was inspired by a short story a friend told me, me being me as usual ended the story with “ohhhh you were feeling romantic?” but it struck me.
So short story, we were having a conversation which led to another and another and she sharing how she surprised her hungry boyfriend with food even though they weren’t in the same state. And trust me once again when I say, Food is pure bliss. He thought she was joking when she said she was going to send food to his place casually and when she did, I’m pretty sure that little gesture she made would have touched him. I cut this story short in order to make this post a bit precise, you could send me a message for the full gist.
It’s funny how life is made up of little and big things and how the little things or gestures still matter the most in my opinion. These little things are a pure expression of our heart’s content when we think no one is paying attention. There are so many times, I’ve seen people do amazing things and when I say amazing, i mean very amazing for other people without even blinking.
While a shiny car may be a way to show you care about or love someone, sometimes the most meaningful things in life may not be shiny or sparkly. Ever been given a gift that is so small yet so thoughtful and a very big surprise to you as well? Well I have and it was simply blissful. Situations like that make me believe that there’s hope for humanity and even in love sometimes.
“Small things make me happy and I laugh out loud at the silliest of jokes”
These little actions or gestures make us feel wanted,loved and cared about. We are in a world where everyone is busy and emails don’t get responded to, texts are forgotten, calls are not attended to. These little gestures keeps us connected one way or the other and make us feel the acceptance we desire.
Most of the time, we get opportunities to help someone, ranging from being friendly and welcoming to paying attention to someone’s little needs. We shouldn’t just overlook situations where we can be of help no matter how little it might seem. When you think no one is watching, someone actually is. We’re all so busy looking forward to being impressed by others and we forget these little things that go a long way in our lives.
So today, on behalf of the “world people”, answer that call, text that someone, be that shoulder to lean on even to those on makeup, compliment that person, smile really hard no matter the colour of your teeth, appreciate anyone and everyone you want to. You never know who needs saving; it may be you or me.
So, even you reading this post, I APPRECIATE YOU. If you leave a message, don’t you think that would be cool?
“Enjoy the little things in life,one day you’d look back and realize that they were the big things”
Love always and whenever,
