‘Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, 

it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude’.

A.A. Milne


Don’t overlook a small heart.

Don’t look past anything insignificant.

Don’t be so quick to dismiss yourself, your life, or any of the things you’ve doing.

Don’t give up on your very small heart. Your seemingly small life, or your insignificant dreams.

Much of what you do, each and every day, will go entirely unnoticed, unheralded, and be quickly forgotten, if seen at all. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t persevere through what you need to do and be unapologetic about who you are.

Your life is not any less important than the lives of the people that are chosen to be noticed. A meaningful life is not a popularity contest to see who can garner the most applause, or get the most media attention, or trend the longest on social media.

What truly matters is the large amounts of gratitude you are capable of holding, throughout everything you face every day, inside that very tiny, insignificant heart of yours.

Mounds and mounds of enormously unseen, copious amounts of gratitude.

That’s the difference.

That’s the undiscovered secret to a meaningful life.

If you’re not grateful for much, I urge you to reconsider.

Rethink your purpose here and begin to notice the small insignificant moments and life’s gestures in your life, that strengthen who who you are.

Don’t complain about waking up.

Don’t bitch that you’re not a morning person. Don’t moan about the world staying quiet until you get a chance to drink your first cup of coffee, or your second, or even your third.

Put on your big boy or big girl panties and take courage in the very breath you draw into your lungs this very day, and for the uncountable possibilities for you to do something today.

Your ability to comfort someone. To help someone. To embrace someone.

Be grateful for where you’ve been, where you are, and have faith that in time, you’ll have more memories to be grateful for.

Don’t judge yourself too harshly.

Gratitude is open to anyone. At anytime.

Even those with very small hearts.

Especially those, with very small hearts.
