For about the past year I have been living for the small things in life. The small things in life are normally not materialistic items; it is normally waking up before your alarm goes off or seeing a beautiful sunset or sunrise. Small things like those. Those small things are all that really matter at the end of the day.
“Maybe you just have to live for the small things, like being called pretty or someone picking up the pen you dropped or laughing so hard till your stomach hurts. Maybe that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.” – Tianna Kavanagh
I saw this quote about a year ago and I have since applied it to my life. What if we all did this? What if we forgot about fights, sadness, arguments, and anger? What if we lived for the small things and forgot about everything else? Do not get me wrong, I’m not saying we should ignore important things in life or live with “no regrets.” All that I am saying is that it really is true; at the end of the day, all that we should really be thinking about is the little things that made us happy, even if it was for a mere second.
Materialistic items are not going to matter in 50 years from now it is the memories that you have. Those memories are going to be what people care about, your bank account and items do not go with you when you die. One of my favorite quotes is “Rich or poor your grave size is still the same; 6 ft under the ground.” The small things in life are what make life worth living.
