It's hard to keep your focus on the things that really matter ultimately when you have to focus on the small things that matter at the present moment. But I think it helps that the small things sometimes matter in the big framework of things.
These days the world is moving so fast, I just feel like nothing ever really matters that much anymore. At the moment I'm really thankful for that, because it's reminding me that any successes or failures aren't eternal. There's always going to be another success, another failure, and at the end of your life those aren't really going to matter as much to the average person.
If I had one thing to be thankful for, it would be that I have tons of things to be thankful for. God's kindness does work through the details of my life, and I only hope He gives me the resilience and strength and wisdom to last this amazing ride.
