Little things

It’s the message from a friend asking to catch up because they are concerned about your mental health.

It’s the phone call from another friend late in the evening worried about you after you’ve shared a quote.

It’s being able to get back to the gym for a class even though you almost die while working out.

It’s walking on the beach and catching up with a friend after ages and yet, not feeling like it’s been that long at all.

It’s telling your manager you’ve been struggling without exercise and having her recommend being flexible with your start times.

It’s hearing from your manager that they don’t want to lose you and ensuring to look after your wellbeing so you stay.

It’s having the bus driver ask you how you are and wish you a great day ahead.

It’s feeling productive at work as you plan for the year ahead.

It’s telling your manager you want to work in psychology and writing in the future and that you hope to build your writing over the next few years.

It’s getting the opportunity to write a blog for your work which will help with your writing portfolio in future.

It’s having a reasonably quiet weekend to help recharge and relax.

It’s Facetiming your sister and spending an hour ranting and another hour debating with your partner in front of her to try and explain some cultural stuff.

It’s shaking your head at your partner’s fascination with wanting to know about your culture especially as you couldn’t care less about it.

It’s receiving text messages from another friend that are the length of essays and knowing how your conversations too usually tend to go on and on and on.

It’s finally realising there may be a light at the end of this tunnel and that all is not as bad as it seemed. There are people who love you, people who care about you and people who value you.

It’s these little things that help you plough on.

    So good you talked to your manager. I think we can often be afraid of what people will say but you can only ask! I am about to have that conversation today.

    It is helpful for me to slow down and appreciate the little things too. Sometimes, I’m so overwhelmed, I have to look for them and force myself to find them. They are definitely there. I just get caught up in all the other JUNK. Hopefully, your own “junk ” clears and your “little things” shine!

    I’ve always believed little things are the big things because even though they’re small they can have such an impact on everything else. Your boss sounds great by the way 🙂
