Pebbles in Your Shoes

What prevents you from reaching the top of a mountain?

“It’s not your tired legs but the pebble in your shoe that keeps you from climbing”.

More often than not it’s how we handle the “little things” that has the greatest impact on the quality of our lives. It’s less about the crises than it is the daily irritations.

So often we are congratulated by our family, friends and colleagues with lots of praise and recognition for handling the big crises, but who notices how we handle the little things?

There is no recognition for handling irritations, but instead, there is peace and serenity. When peace and serenity dominate our lives daily, we begin to appreciate the real gift of daily living.

Are you getting better at handling the little things?
