And we all forget the little things sometimes..

AAAANNNNDDDD it’s March(and by that I mean that we’re 5 days into it already :O )…I hate when the months just creep up on me like that. Classes have definitely been keeping me EXTREMELY occupied lately, sigh. The next few weeks are just going to be completely crazy and hectic and eventually, a huge blur. 😛 I’ve been wanting to make a post like this on here for the longest time(maybe I’ve written a similar one before? or maybe I wrote that in my mind? who knows, you lose track of the posts once you have some 300 posts, anywho, this can be the “updated” version) but then procrastination and school and other things got in the way of that, and therefore, that never happened. Now I’m just forcefully taking a break from studying for my midterm that’s on Friday(which by the way, I’m nowhere near ready to write) – please, don’t tell me that I’m setting myself up for disaster.
Recently, or maybe in the past month or so, I’ve noticed the presence of “unhappiness” and “confusion” and “frustration” among my friends….and I hate it. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. There are many reasons as to why they feel this way, but the part that nicks me the most is the fact that some of their reasons for feeling that way don’t seem very justifiable. So here’s something to think about: 
There’s so much in this world to be thankful for and a lack of appreciation can bring us down. Take each day as a blessing: your life will start to feel more complete, and you’ll get more out of your life. This is your life, it’s your time to shine, make of it what you want, don’t let other people bring you down or hinder you, and above all else, make it yours. You can’t always rely on the big picture that YOU want to see happening, happening. Things change, people change, this so called ‘big picture’ is CONSTANTLY changing. Let the little things in your life bring you joy. Life’s a puzzle. A big picture is made out of smaller pieces, so pay fine attention to the little things that make up the final masterpiece. The joy that you feel from the little things will build up and eventually turn into the big picture. Will every little piece in this picture be perfect? Of course not! But that’s what makes YOUR ‘big picture’ unique from MY ‘big picture’, and your friend’s ‘big picture’. Cry a little, but laugh a lot. Don’t rush. Take time to cherish every small thing and absorb the happiness that each small thing brings. You will never be happy with the final result of something if you’re not stopping on the way to take it all in one breath at a time. Let yourself be happy! If you don’t allow yourself to let loose and just relax, how in the world will you find happiness? If you fall, rise up again. A few cuts and bruises here and there aren’t going to destroy you forever. Just don’t knock yourself back down again because of it. If you don’t believe in yourself, would it help if I said that I do?  Go to bed happy, wake up happy and tell yourself that it’s going to be a good day and see the world from a more positive perspective. Exchange a smile for a smile. Appreciate the little things and your journey to the final ‘big picture’ will hold so much more meaning.  All in all, a small perspective change can drastically change things for the better.
