Finding Balance in the Small Things

This will be my final post in my 3-part series on the “importance of small.” Did I know I was writing a mini-series? No…it just happened. It happened, I think, in response to the feelings I was having of being overwhelmed by the BIG issues in our world.
In response, I instinctively turned to the “small” issues to re-center my self (centering is my OLW).

Did I know I was re-centering? No…it just happened. It was an instinctive move toward balance that was missing in my daily life. First, I turned to nature and wrote about my walks in the park, greeting the “regulars,” which now includes me. Then I wrote about a small visitor who came for an hour-long visit and restored a feeling of joy and fun in my life. I’ve also written recently about how I’ve turned my focus from national issues, to the very threatening issue of over-development in my town, causing me to re-focus my lens.

Yes, there’s a new lens on my camera for now… a micro-lens. Today I was going to write about something small but amazing I found on a recent nature walk, but instead you got this post. (Next time!) This post reflects a different me, turning more inward. I’m usually “out there” spinning around in the universe.

For now, I’m happy to have both feet planted on solid ground!

  1. These things that you have been sharing may be small but I think they are the really important things — taking care of yourself, getting to know a little one next door, and saving your community. Now I’m eager to see what new “mini-series” you will write.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my recent posts about “small things” and for your encouragement to create more mini-series. It was a fun experiment…one that I didn’t realize I was engaging in until I was actually doing it!

  2. Sometimes it is the small things that bring joy, and when added up the small things become the biggest source of strength.
