I think we are all slightly guilty of focusing a lot of our attention on the bigger picture. I know I am. We are trained to plan for the future...especially when it comes to our education, finances family etc. And although the latter is very important , I think it's sometimes too easy to get caught up in all that and forget to focus on the present. I have been guilty of that myself.
It's not until my siblings started having kids, that I realized how fast everything passes. In the blink of an eye, our first little baby of the family is already almost 7!! Our parents have started greying, I can't shop the same places I used to, and I found my first spider vein a few weeks ago!(eeeek!!)
Whether its spending time with your kids, or parents or friends,travelling the world, or having a quiet cup of coffee with your favourite person...let's all try and make the time to do and appreciate the little things in life that make it so special. A walk in the park, a scoop of icecream with grandma or playing board games with your little nephew...make time for what's important. Take some time to stop and smell the roses...
I'd love to hear about the little big things in your life!
