“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” – Robert Brault
With all the glitz and glammer marketing throws at us everyday, it’s easy to imagine why we grow up thinking the prize is the big thing. Having a nice house, a fat bank account, an expensive new car or truck, or a job with a big salary. Don’t get me wrong, those things are great. But they are also often how we, and many others, measure our success.
People are likely to give us props when they find out we got a high paying job. But when they discover we’re singing and dancing every morning upon awakening, most people rarely rush over to give us a high five. But loving life is, at least for me, the true measure of success. So I make it a point to congratulate myself for doing things which make me feel great about myself, and going out of my way to help others. Because when I remember that loving me, others and my life is the ultimate prize, and I try my best to always have my thoughts, actions and words in alignment with those goals, ILML!
