It’s the small things

  • A cup of tea.
  • A favourite song.
  • An email from a friend.

I’m making a conscious effort to take time out and appreciate the small things.

The hustle and bustle of modern life, longer work hours, commutes and social media have caused me and many others to get caught up in the stress rather than living in the moment.

The challenge I’ve set myself is to be more present in the moment, take note of the good little things and try not to lose sight of what’s important.

This means taking more of a Pollyanna approach to life in some ways, but really it’s just about being grateful for the privileged life we live.

It’s time to be more mindful, use the pretty teacups, catch up with the people who make our souls sing and read books that inspire us.
