The Small Stuff

14 Jun 2019


We often get so fixated on the big things that we completely miss the small stuff that really actually matters. 


We have somehow convinced ourselves that everything we do has to be big, that change comes in massive waves, or not at all.


That you always need to be bold and daring


That what you do needs to be visible enough for all to see or else it doesn’t count


But the reality is; 


It’s the tiny things that make the difference, the real difference. 


The little stuff that no-one sees


That gentle stare


A touch


A show of kindness, your thoughtfulness


Approaching those you Love with care and tenderness.


It’s about brushing your teeth every day


Getting up at the right time 


Making your bed


Showing up 


Following through


Delivering on your promises


It’s not about gifts, bells and whistles 


Or a new car


A fancy school or a display home


Or bringing home a bigger pay cheque


or talking a big game and making empty promises


But about really giving something of yourself, 


Your time, your attention, your Love your presence


It’s about human connection, cooperation and being fully alive 


If you want change, real change, the type that lasts


Then you don’t want revolution, what you need is evolution. 


Don’t just act on a whim, a burst of emotion or frustration, but rather be slow and steady, consistently chipping away, one little thing at a time. 


It’s not about doing things once in a big way,


But doing the small things repeatedly, 


Forming good habits and embodying change, real growth and transformation. 


You may often hear the terms ‘ don’t sweat the small stuff ‘, but it’s the small stuff that you should be sweating, because the bottom line is,


that the devil is always in the detail.
