Some days I just want to spread as much love, light and peace as I can. I know it may seem naive or silly, to some, when people share these kinds of pictures and these kinds of sentiments. But I do not think that. I think that it is all of these little things, all of these little sayings and sentiments, add up… and they CAN and DO make a difference in the world.
When you are on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest, or when you open your email and see some lovely image, or read an inspiring quote, it may only last a minute, but admit it, you like the feeling it gives you. You may get a little warm feeling in your heart or you may feel a little smile spread across your face. When I share a little happy picture or inspirational quote or saying, that’s all I want. I just want that moment for you.
Why do I want that? Well, I want that because if you have a moment like that, maybe first thing in the morning or maybe during a break in your daily routine… or maybe even in a moment when you were feeling a little bit down… what happens? You take that little warm feeling, that little smile, and you bring it with you into the rest of your day. And maybe, you might share that little inspiration or lovely feeling with someone else, and they will get their own warm feeling or smile… or maybe you will just take that feeling that cheered you up a little and cheer someone else up.
Or maybe you won’t. But guess what? I’d much rather take the chance and assume that you will… and not worry about it if you don’t or if you think I’m silly or whatever. I’m okay with that.
You see, I’ve always sort of envied the people that bring BIG beauty or BIG inspiration into the world. I’ve always sort of wished I could do THAT. But, then, I thought about it. While that is a wonderful thing to do, I also think it is just as wonderful, and just as important to bring those little moments of beauty and the quick instances of inspiration into the world. When we pepper our days with those little ones… well, it makes a big difference. It just does.
