It’s the Little Things: his touch, my son’s smile, a warm blanket straight out of the dryer on a cold day. I am such a simple person and I wish we lived in a simple world.
I believe this world that we live in is too complicated. If everyone would treat people the way that they want to be treated, perform random acts of kindness on a regular basis, and simply minded their own business, I think this would be world where I would be proud to raise my son.
I cannot figure out how life got so complicated, one day I was in the backyard of my parent’s house acting out Charlie’s Angels with my sisters or trying to train crickets how to swim and now I have to worry about not only working but making enough money to raise my son, teaching my son right from wrong and obeying laws that some people within the “justice system” may not even follow.
Why can’t it just be simple. Be nice, be happy and live a long, wonderful life.
It’s the Little Things: the way he holds me when we sleep, the sound of my son’s laugh, walking down the boardwalk of a beach.
Life is so complicated. Why do we care so much about the color of skin instead of the fact that we are all human? Why do we care so much about interracial relationships and not the fact that people are in a healthy relationship? Why do we care that different races want to adopt children instead of applauding the fact that people want to give children a safe and happy home?
I want life to be simplified for my son to grow up in a world with no stereotypes, no hypocrites & no judgment.
It’s the Little Things: When I can hear my son singing in the shower, the way he makes me laugh, a quiet Sunday afternoon.
If everyone took time to appreciate the little things they would not have the time to create such a complicated world.
I challenge you to take 1 week to appreciate all of the Little Things that matter in your life and write them down. You may be surprised at how many truly little, simple things happen in our busy daily lives.
Please share with me some of your “Little Things”. I would love to hear from you.
