There are little, tiny things that happen every single day that are big.

They have huge effects in our lives. It might be something as simple as opening the door for someone.

It might be taking time to really and truly focus on what someone is saying, and trying to understand why they’re saying it.

It might be taking a phone call and answering someone’s question.

Staying true to yourself in those little moments can be hard, particularly when we are rushed and pushed and hurried on every front. There are deadlines. You need to be here and there at specific times. There are millions of details that need to be resolved.

Rest assured, we all feel the same pressures. It can seem impossible to remain true amid all the chaos.

Hang in there. And remember, it’s the little things that make you who you are.
