It's no wonder why I get so bored with the human race, sometimes,
     for we are such a predictable, habitual  bunch.
Here we are, in the month of January,
     and all of the news programs ( morning, day, and night),
as well as social network sites,
     keep uttering and posting the same three letter phrase:


Not only that, but we are so accustomed to having immediate results,
     that only the second week in

there is already talk of . . . . . .

"New Year's Resolutions, BROKEN.  
Is it TOO LATE ? ? ?" 

And, in the meantime,
     all of these moments are passing us by
where we do SIMPLE and WONDERFUL and MEANINGFUL things
     without taking notice or giving ourselves credit
because, somehow,
we do not see them as anything . . . . . . extraordinary !!!  

Henry Moore (1898-1986), English sculptor and artist seemed to have it right, when he said,    

                     I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the year's.  

For, it IS the little things that we do every day 
     that absolutely are . . . . . . 


Think about what you have done . . . . . .

  1. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin talks about the importance of the little things. I'm waiting for the book to be delivered, but I have already been so inspired just by reading the foreword.
