You know what they say? It’s the little things that matter. Yes, that’s the truth all right.

More than you will ever know, it is the little things that matter in life. Yes, the big stuff matters a lot too, such as going to work and paying your bills. But on a day-to-day basis, the little things matter more than anything else.

You Really Care

The things that seem to add up over time are those items that don’t cost anything at all. You don’t pay for them. They don’t cost money. And you cannot buy them.

“Do you care?” asked someone lately.

That’s what it all comes down to on this planet.

“Do you know how this makes me feel?" said somebody else.

Life comes down to the little things. One of those is how you treat other people and how you don’t treat them. Do you have a kind soul? Are you friendly and warm?

  • Do the right thing. When the rubber meets the road, are you going to do what you are supposed to do in life? The right thing is what society expects if you when the going gets tough. The right thing is what the best version of somebody else would do in that same situation. This is a little thing that can become a big thing right away.
  • Be good to those around you. When things are good and bad, can you be the best version of yourself? Let warmth and love flow from your heart no matter the circumstances.
  • Stay hopeful for the future. Yes, bad times can happen as they often do around the planet. Buckle up and stay strong as you find your way in life.

We Have One Life To Live

Too often, it is easy to think we can go our own way and be a lone wolf. That’s not the way it works any more. There are other people on the planet who deserve the best we can give and that is how we treat them on a regular basis.

There are things you can do to make the lives of others more wonderful. This is so true. A little effort goes a long way.

  • Say something nice
