Little Things Make a Great Day

Early this week, I reflected on another great day.  Though nothing spectacular happened, I realized a number of small things combined to create a remarkable day:

  • lovely, even if only brief, connection with those I love most
  • meaningful interactions with treasured work colleagues
  • important incremental advances on work projects
  • special, planned time with long-time friends
  • time committed to advancing the mission of a marvelous nonprofit organization
  • yummy food, lovingly prepared
We can get so caught up in expectations for significant events, milestones and plans that we can lose sight of the many, many small occurrences that create great days.  

Great moments lead to great hours, then days, then weeks, then months, then years and thus lifetimes.
