Small things

So many things to worry about, or at least to pursue, in the future…

Projects, plans, budgets, launches, promotions, purchases, sales, changes, losses…

Each, whether you long for it or dread it, could well never come to pass. And each will surely one day come to an end.

Alongside all your effort why not, then, cultivate the practice and discipline of paying minute attention to what is? The sparkle in someone’s eye, the sound of pen moving across paper, the click of a keyboard, the weight of warm dishes in soapy water, the light streaming between half-open blinds, the feel of being with companions, colleagues.

You may find that there is pleasure, solace, and exquisite beauty in cultivating awareness of the everyday small things that, together, make up a life.
