One of my favourite quotes says ” Enjoy the Little Things in Life for Someday You Will realize That They Were The Big Things”. Sit down for a moment and think about the quote.
Do you notice the small things that are happening in your life, or do you overlook them? How do they impact your course of action in everyday life? Do they affect your progress towards your goals?
I think the quote is excellent, and that we shouldn’t forget to enjoy the little things in life for someday you will realize that they were the big things. Sadly, people, in general, realize this when it is too late.
I am quite confident that many of you that read this will recognize the quote from their own life.
Starting the New Day off On the Right Foot
We have a dog in our family. She is a beautiful little lady who goes by the name of Nemi. She has her routines, and one of them is the morning walk.
She needs to go to the bathroom in the morning, and she needs to stretch her legs a bit to get her body going at the beginning of a new day. She is just like us when we wake up. If you have a dog or a cat for that matter, have you noticed this and studied their morning rituals?
If you haven’t, do it and watch what they do, all the little things that make up their day. When Nemi is finished with her stretching routine, she comes to me and my wife to greet us and say good morning, and then say hello to our kids if they ar awake.
She says good morning with cuddles and playing a little bit. It is her way to say good morning, I love you. The routine she has created is great. Nemi´s way of communicating very is very subtle and gentle. After 7 years with her, my family and I have at last started to understand her on a deeper level.
After all the play and fun, and of course the cuddles, she is ready to go on her morning walk. She is clearly showing me that she is happy, doing her incredible cute little “tribal dance” in front of the door and around me or my wife.
The Morning News and Peace of Mind
When we finally get out, Nemi runs along, sticking her snout down on the ground and checks out her surroundings, reading the “newspaper”. Who has been here, when were they here and what did they do?
When the weekend arrives, her morning walks are of a much longer duration. They usually last for an hour. She decides where she wants to go and how long it lasts.
The fantastic part of it all is that we are completely alone and can enjoy the sounds of Mother Nature to the fullest without being disturbed. This lays the foundation of a moment of mindfulness.
The clicking away on the pavement from her tiny paws are entering my ears, in sync with the bird’s song from many birds, leaves that rustle in the mild breeze as we pass, the feeling of the breeze stroke my face and arms, the smell of mother nature, butterflies fluttering away on their morning tasks, bumblebees buzzing away on their morning chores. These are small things looked at separately, but a really big thing when you see them together. All of them gives such a calming and soothing impact on body and mind
Without one of these small things, we would not have the others…
My Mind Goes into Creativity Modus and New Ideas Starts to Form
My mind drifts away on its own during this time. It is spinning around at “free will”. Fragments from yesterday and the day before together with fragments from the present floating around.
After a while, the fragments start to connect and making sense, and the new day´s tasks start to manifest themselves, new ideas follow, getting fuelled by the energy of everything around me.
The result is several new ideas for blog posts for my website!
Digital Entrepreneurs And The Ability to Make Use of the Little Things in Life
As digital entrepreneurs, we do to develop our websites, our network and our online presence. To succeed you have to pay attention to the little things, as they will lead you to your destination, wherever, whenever and whatever that is.
The little things will join together as snow crystals when you are making a snowball. If you do not gather enough snow, the snowball will stay small. Small things going unnoticed and overlooked, is opportunities and possibilities lost.
I got a surprise this morning checking my social media platforms, belonging to a niche about Coffee, Beer and Gadgets. I haven’t been very active on them, and haven’t managed to gear up on the pinning and posting yet. But every now and then, a new post has been published. On the referenced Pinterest account, I have reached over 24k views on the account and the published pins at the moment
The number has increased from some 20 views at the beginning of last month, and that is without having more than a handful of my own pins published.
Think about the possibilities this offers to drive traffic to my websites! I can see clearly why it is important to have enough content on my websites. Content equals traffic, equals better chance for conversions!
So again: “”Enjoy the Little Things in Life for Someday You Will realize That They Were The Big Things”
The digital entrepreneur lifestyle is a lifestyle without other limitations than what you set yourself. Do you want to try to make a change and take action to work when, wherever and however you want?
