Little Things Matter

by therinamartins

Don't be Posh and go Solo

Friends are amazing little things in your life that should be cherished. They unfortunately don't last forever, but when they come into your life, they change it. Cherish them.

Family Always wins.

Got sick of your family? Well, live a little without them at all and you'll see how much they matter. Don't push them away. Or else you'll never be able to pull them close again.

Nature

Beautiful, yet little, things surround us everyday. Don't go on your way without relishing them. You never know when you won't have them anymore.

Smile? Yes.

Smiling is such small act yet it can turn someone's life completely around. They don't get free smiles everyday. But you give them out without charge.

Making Small Steps Big

Support a help organization. You might never meet the person you'll be helping out, but believe me, they will be grateful for you for the rest of their lives. Small acts of kindness go far.

Don't forget to love

A tiny word with a big meaning. Don't forget about it. It's what binds everything together. Without it, we'd be goners.

@bernardtwindwil, I believe that my body is sacred, and if I go around doing drugs or drinking, I'd lose the whole touch of being able to see things clearly. And no, you're not stepping on my toes, I appreciate the concern. And, yes! Lol, it's funny how much our parents contradict themselves, but I know that they love me, so that's what matters:-) Wonder is what makes us better. We should never lose it, and those who do are fools. They have lost something very, very precious. You know, I'd love to sit down one day and talk with you, sir. We may have a lot to discuss. But those issues can wait for written articles where others can read and learn with us...

@therinamartin Your mind is certainly not operating younger than you peer group. A parent's prerogative is to set mileposts for you. When my boys were younger, I used to change the mileposts at least twice a day. No parent wants their children to grow up. But, we want grandchildren desperately. What a conundrum.

@therinamartins You have a good heart. It is critically important to be who you are, even in the face of peer pressure. I hope I am not stepping on your toes. A pure mind needs a pure body. By that, I do not mean chaste, but that is certainly alright. Whatever you eat should be something you can pronounce. Inhaling any smoldering plant matter is not well thought out. Nothing goes in a pure person's veins except blood. Of course, I make the exception for medically necessary products. One of my favorite sayings is that growing old is inevitable, but growing up is voluntary. I never want to lose my sense of wonder.

@bernardtwindwil, what people lack is that simple childlike wonder. They think they're big and buff, when they're almost cracking inside. Having a pure heart isn't a bad thing, it helps you see beyond what's actually there. When you have wonder, you are always learning, always seeking a new way to see things. And in the end you seem much older in years than the ones who try so hard to act like it. I have always tried to look at things from a good point of view, from a good heart, and it comes naturally for me to see things some people don't. It's a pity really. They lose out on so much. And when they get old, they'll regret so much. I don't want to do that, and I don't want others to do that. So I write.

@bernardtwindwil, lol, thank you! It's funny actually, because my parents say I act a couple years YOUNGER than my age. I guess I matured quicker than they want me to....that's what writing does to you. And it's the little things that matter most.
