“People say that it's the big decisions that are important... that these are the type of issues worthy of prolonged consideration. But no one ever explains how it's the little choices that send your life careening in another direction.”
― Julie Gittus, Saltwater Moons
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. That the little things you do matter in big ways. You may not see it for a while, and you may not know which action or decision changed the course, but it all adds up.
For me, this quote is a reminder that the little things we do and say have a direct impact on our lives, our well being, and those of our loved ones. One little act of jealousy can set your relationship on fire, never to recover. Likewise, a friend showing up with your favorite Thai dish when you're sick can plant the seed that grows into love. A small choice, made in an instant, after which you find yourself making new plans for the rest of your life.
