The one BIG thing…


Are you waiting for the one BIG thing?

As humans we tend to want the one BIG thing. If only I could win the lotto… If only I could buy that car… if only I did not have to do that… BUT life seldom works that way.Sure, somebody does win the lotto… but the odds are stacked heavily against it being you…

Of course not all things are equally big… but when the smallest thing is occupying your mind it is BIG…

I am particularly guilty of the “If only I did not have to do this…” line. This week it would be “if only I did not have to mark these supplementary papers…”

However we forget that life is not “if only” – no, life comprises many, many things, and if we are lucky the number of great things are much more than the number of not-so-great things.
