Big Things VS Little Things

Often times, we neglect the little things that we encounter everyday without knowing that they actually matter to us, as we are too focused on the big things that we have.

When I was in High School, I’d always felt that the students from the first section are the best in the eyes of all our teachers. They are everything to them! And the ones in the lower sections are nothing but brats! But what these “lower” students have become after high school graduation are far better than the ones from the first section. For me it didn’t matter at that time, I was in the 2nd section out of 12 sections anyway. So, I guess I was doing alright.

When wallets become empty, that’s the only time that most people consider the old/used things that they have. Otherwise, you won’t find them in the house. Either they are busy shopping for nothing or simply spending because they don’t know what to do with their money.

After each break-up, we find ourselves cursing our exes because we were hurt for some reasons. We just completely forget the good times that we’ve had when everything was still fine.

There are many little things that we don’t see because we are so blinded by the big things that we have. That even when we get recognized or given rewards i.e. salary raise, we don’t give Thanks to Him! We only see the consequence of the hard work that we’ve done but never the blessings that we received. Oooops! I’m guilty!

I admit. I’m one of those people who often times neglect the little things. I only realize in the end that they matter if I needed them and couldn’t seem to find a new one.

  2. I guess that’s the way life is. You can only deal with what is dealt to you. Sometimes though you have to look around you just to make sure that you aren’t missing something. It could be those “somethings” that could spell ultimate success or otherwise. Have a wonderful day!!
