I’ve been thinking of small things recently.
I know that most people in my stage of life are thinking big. Maybe there’s a cultural push too. Us 20-somethings are supposed to dream big, focus on the big picture, envision a long-term plan to reach for big goals. You know…the whole “change the world” rigmarole.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been thinking of all those “big things” too, but for some reason I can’t stop focusing on the smaller, little things that take up a minuscule amount of my time. It takes work – like swimming upstream when all the other fish and river-side billboards are telling you it’s insignificant – but I don’t think it’s pointless.
