So speaking of blogs never have I ever read one until a close friend chronicled her double lung transplant, now that was interesting, worth reading, maybe because i cared about her. But it made me realise that i have to feel connected to the person to actually have a desire to hear what they say. I also realised that if when i have written the best stuff it is when someone has asked a question and given me the opportunity to reply. When things have a context behind it they have so much more meaning to them. So below i am going to post a question and an answer between myself an old student.
Do you think i'm destined for great things, or are the little things in life more important?
Great things? Yes. It is unavoidable. There is no plan that could exist in this world that does not have you living a great life, as soon as you realise that you will make every decision from a place that says you already have it, and thus you will know it to be true and it will come into existence. So remember everything great is coming to you.
The little things are not separate from the great things. I always wanted to make the biggest difference, 'Do big things to make a difference' is what i thought. To be great i thought that things had to be big, and then i realised that the joy was in doing the smallest of things for someone, things that people would never know who did it, or would never know it was even done, this was the grand realisation I gained from being a clown, that one smile could be the last smile someone has before they die. It was confronting and yet so small a thing. So for me the greatness now lies in the smallest of pleasures, if you can appreciate the smallest of things life is destined to be grand. Make the most out of the small things and make them huge.
