I’ve been thinking a lot about exactly what it is that is most likely to make me happy.
It’s not always easy to know.
It’s so difficult to capture the big picture.
To see your life as a whole and make the right choices.
The big decisions always creep up on you, appear out of the blue.
It’s easy enough to change one small thing,
see how you like it and then make your next move.
It’s just not possible to plan the whole thing, see your own movie in your head and know how it will end. That’s not how life works. Today is all you can see.
The big picture will never be perfect. There’s always a wheelbarrow or a falling-down-curtain ruining the shot.
There are always small difficulties.
Caterpillars will persist in trying to eat the cabbages.
The dog (innocent face) will continue to dig up the daffodil bulbs.
Blackberries will fail to ripen.
If you stick to the small things.
There are such wondrous pleasures.
Moments of perfect contentment.The most ordinary things that we fail to notice unless we are very still.
Blink. You’ll miss it.
But, another one is just waiting to appear.
If I can blur out the busy mess of indecision in the background.
Sometimes you can nurse an idle dream for a long time without really needing it to become a reality. Sometimes the dream is all you need.
PS. Can you believe that I took every last one of these pictures today, the second of November?! This, THIS makes me happy.
