So, another year has passed by us.
On occasions like these, it is customary to take a moment to look back at the key events of the year. Luckily, I managed to outsource that task to an engineer in Bangalore…
Boy, am I going to get smacked for that… Eh, moving on.
You see, when we do do these kinds of things, we tend to focus too much on events that are merely stepping stones that lead us to more stepping stones.
You might think getting that new job, or a major promotion, made the year special, but did it, really? Sure, it may lead to something else that is special, but is it special in and of itself?
I don’t know; to me, it is not the big events that make my life special. It is the little things, things that are almost impossible to substantiate, but are substantial nonetheless.
Things like the smile on someone’s face when they taste the food you cooked, or the quiver in their voice when you get them something they really need but refuse to buy for themselves, or the shimmer in their eyes when you tell them how they make you feel.
The little things…
