The Little Things

James Chamberlain at Herrenchiemsee Palace

Seems most of the time we have to pay attention to the big things around us; making sure we’re fed, sheltered, clothed and employed. When you think about it, most of our time is spent on those details and not so much on what makes us happy. I firmly believe it’s the little things that make us feel good, make us feel like ourselves and the older we get the more we seem to lose sight of what those little things are.

I’m going to take this week to try and get in touch with what makes me feel good. It may be a visit to a museum exhibit I’ve put off for months. Maybe I’ll finally go and clean out my storage unit… Perhaps, I’ll just fill the apartment with fresh flowers and play a Bach flute sonata. Or, I’ll get up early and hustle over to the Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers and feel the thrilling sensation of cutting through pristine ice under fantastically sharp blades. You need to do the same: think about what that little thing is and make some time for it. I’m positive you’ll feel like a new person.
