small things in life .....

We always look at the bigger picture, but it is the small little things that make us happy. Life is a journey of pretty little moments bringing a smile to our face .Childhood is a treasure box of all such small memories, i think that's why children are always happy, because as children we enjoy the small things in life and the big picture always follows by attracted to your happiness.Its sad that we don't have time for these small things anymore or don't value them any more.little things in life


As the popular poem we learnt in school---

W. H. Davies

Leisure

WHAT is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?—
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.


ahhh (sigh),, does it ring any bell? Its never late, so i , myself decided to break the pattern of mundane activities and enjoy the little things coming throughout the day. Words are not sufficient to explain the feeling of satisfaction and content the little things give me and it instantly cheers up my day and i feel happier and a better person. :) :) (power of small , i guess )Life is in details -- right, so these details are the little things and little joys and gestures which spruce up life.


This is a list of small little things i do which makes my life wonderful. I believe you live once so live fully, with no regrets. Without missing any moment.
