Do Little Things With Great Love

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

Mother Teresa

What small acts can you do today to strengthen the bonds between you and the people you value the most?  What random acts of kindness can you offer to someone to make his or her day just a little better? The greatness of being more compassionate is that you feel better as well.


Start With Tiny Gestures

To practice being more loving, start with some tiny gestures. Buying your partner fresh flowers for no reason at all, sending your best friend a copy of your favourite book, telling your parents how much you value them, thanking someone for their help or taking the time to tell your children how you feel about them are all good ways to start.

Why Little Things Matter?

There are myriad reasons that prove that the little things matter the most and why you should pay attention to them. Some of them are as follows:


1. They Keep Us Humble

Paying attention to the little positive things in life will help you shift your focus away from the negative things. Take a moment to appreciate the tiny things that you may normally overlook like holding a door for a stranger, sharing a smile with a friend, going on a date with your parents.

2. They Teach Us Life Lessons

It’s the little things in life that make us realize our mistakes and weakness. They make us acknowledge our strengths and powers. If we pay attention to them, we may realise that these little things are actually small steps towards the bigger goal.


3. They Make The Bonds Stronger

Big things matter every now and again but it’s the tiny things in every relationship that keeps it alive on a day-to-day basis. Enjoying the cup of coffee with your spouse or holding hands with them make the spark alive.

4. They Make Life Memorable

Life is made up of so many significant little moments. Whether it’s moving to a new home, starting a new job or having a friend going above and beyond to help us out; these smaller moments are what make life more unforgettable. 

5. They Boost Motivation

Another benefit that comes from celebrating the little things, is that it boosts your motivation. No matter what you’re working towards in your life, you’re going to need a good level of motivation to keep striving to achieve it. By celebrating the small milestones along the way, it keeps you motivated and focused on your end goal. 

Life is made up of little things. It is very rarely that an occasion is offered for doing a great deal at once. True greatness consists in being great in the little things.

Charles Simmons

I feel it’s the little things in life that matter the most. These tiny gestures of affection will give you a sense of satisfaction and joy that no amount of money can ever give you.


“Without the rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
