Small Things

It’s amazing that the smallest thing can spoil your mood or break confidence and it’s equally amazing that the most insignificant thing can get you back to your normal confident self in no time.

Your hands wrapped around a hot cup of coffee, gazing at the world from a distance, feeling the warmth of the coffee seep into you, all matters seem so insignificant. When viewed from a distance, when detached, all matters fall into line as per their priority.

Hitting an unbelievable shot at Table Tennis – even when you knew it was a fluke or simply winning a game can get the confidence soaring sky-high.

Or just driving along the road, with no one for company but yourself. A chain of thoughts is provoked and the worry that was lingering over your head passes by you.

Observing the clouds, making patterns in them… Feeling the raindrops on yourself…

Small things do matter in life.

    very well-written, like the rest of your posts. goes to show that someone beyond your circle, across the oceans is actually reading your philosophical thoughts. after being completely unproductive at work today due to a “little thing” which occurred, and randomly surfing the www, i “stumbled” across your blog. definetely was comforting to be reminded that every one of us goes thru something similar…. though on the same note, it’s the little things in life which make life worthwhile, worth living. a simple smile, a warm hug and your problems seem to evaporate. sometimes even a blog entry from an unknown individual can prove to be as great a remedy to a sour mood as a brownie sundae was when we were young πŸ˜‰ can’t life be as simple as it was back then? where our mother’s kisses would heal our scraped knees and a post-doctor’s-visit-lollipop would help us to forget our fears. anyone have a time machine?
