Focus more on the little things?

in Hope, Seeing Clearly

Is it the big things or little things in life that most determine our happiness? According How to Dodge Buyer’s Remorse, a blog post with some good sources listed, it’s the little things.

In other words happiness comes from the small pleasures in life. By the same token it’s the little hassles that are most apt to get us down.”

This many seem counter-intuitive, but as I look at myself, and those around me, I see it is true. Big things may give us a larger boost in happiness, but they don’t last long. A steady trickle of small joys is much better at making us happy. By the same token, we usually survive a major bad event, but crumble under a steady drip of small annoyances and problems.

Maybe we need to focus more on the little things.

Justin Jackson - Two days of silent treatment is a very bad sign. Refusing to speak is a very immature way of dealing with anything, and it's not going to help build a better marriage. I suggest you seek some help ASAP so that the two of you can learn to communicate effectively.
