Making the most of the little things. Watch this video.
Every now and then I try to take a departure from my cynical, sarcastic, capitalist ways and try to find some inner bliss that enables me to appreciate those things I have versus those that I do not. I don’t necessarily mean material possessions but more important things (yes more important) such as family and health.
I know this sounds corny and I’d normally be the first person to scoff perhaps the same way you are right now. The reality is that each of us needs to find time to try and appreciate the small things in life. Yes, easier said than done and I’m one of the world’s worse; being a so called ‘perfectionist’ slash ‘control freak’ it’s difficult for me to be content with one thing and when I think I am I’m already moving onto the next.
And it’s just as I’m considering this that Stumbleupon decides to throw some really interesting things at me but nothing touched me today as much as the video below. I instantly felt a connection and I guarantee, if you get beyond the first 30 seconds, you will too (if you have a pulse of course).
Life may not be everything I want it to be but it is what it is and, albeit occasionally, I should make the most of that.
