The Little Things Matter
It's not usually the big things that overwhelm me it's a whole string of little things - little frustrations like a broken shoe lace when I am in a hurry or not being able to find something that make me feel overwhelmed. Add a whole string of little things together and.... But then again, the little things can make a difference in a good way too. An unexpected phone call from a friend. A smile from a stranger in the grocery store, a postcard in the mail full of good wishes or the chickens starting to lay eggs again after a two month hiatus. Little gifts that lighten the spirit and make me feel like I am on the right track after all.
So when you are feeling bogged down in all the details - stand back. Look at where you started, how far you've come and where you want to go in your story. You just might surprise yourself to actually see just how far you have come. The little things really do count.
