Reblog: Being small

Loved this article from : link

“Our world today is enormous. Superquadruplemegahuge. We’re hyperstimulated, hyperinformed, hyperconnected.
We have to be everywhere, do everything, know everyone; make the most money, broker the best deal, find the best career, go to the best school, give the most effort, win the most clashes; be the best friend, cook the tastiest food, have the cleanest house, parent the best kids, lose the most weight, be the best lover; write the best pieces, be the most innovative, make the wittiest comments, think the deepest thoughts, find the best ending, be the most creative.”
“What happened to being small?
To cultivating a close circle of intimate friends. To perfecting your craft with love and patience. To being quiet and embracing the silence. To being unplugged and unreachable. To finding joy in nature and personal relationships. To knowing your Self. To thriving in love because it’s your world. To just be-ing.” 

“The best way to leave a legacy is not to live up to the expectations of being big, but to place worth, value, meaning, and love into your own journey.  The rest will come.”
