The little things count. Remembering the things that went well at the end of the day, taking a deep breath or two when stressed, seeing the glass as half full, and listening to the birds sing, are all little ways of taking good care of ourself. Adding them up they became a big thing. Being silent hearing the wind rustle through the trees, watching the butterfly dance from flower to flower, and noticing the clouds drift and change shapes are all ways of balancing our life and feeling whole. Slowing down to the pace of nature, skipping while humming a tune and holding a smile, and just observing the world free of judgment are all ways of centering our lives. Smiling with others, opening the door for them, and saying hello, and are ways of opening the heart. Adding all these little things together creates a life bigger than its parts. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
