The Little Things

This morning the little plastic tab on my bodega coffee clicked perfectly into place.

On my way to the store, there was a stout african american man rocking out to rap music in his minivan.

And before I left the house my beautiful and loving girlfriend snuggled up to me sweet and warm and safe.

There are times in life where the big things don’t go your way. The election results seem crazy, your deal goes south, it feels like you don’t know where to go next or what to do. And it’s in moments like this that you simply have to focus on the little things. No matter how bad the rest of life is going, how depressing the world may seem, your coffee is still warm, the sun kisses your skin softly, and there is still work to be done.

Nothing lasts, so why not savor the sweet things, that moment by moment make up the breathtaking if not dream like life we all live.
