Day 11: the power of small

11 Jan

I’m constantly amazed at how big “little” is.
Today, for instance, on a whim, I decided to make a little change on my computer screen.

If I had to guess, I absorb the image that floats on my MacBook Pro for at least 10 hours a day. As I looked at it today for the billionth time, I thought: Why haven’t I changed it from my default factory setting?

It’s such a simple task.
It took less than a minute of my time.
And, yet, it has a profound impact on my heart and mind throughout the day — every single day.  All year long.

Here’s the before shot:

And the after shot:

One is much easier on the eyes and way more inspiring to my heart too.

It has me thinking…
Where else do I look all day long?
What do I see in my line of sight?
And, what message is it giving me?

It’s a good reminder to me that we are in control of our environment.  Not just our emotions, our reactions and our state of mind — but also what we choose to see.

Little is big.
Big can be simple.
Simple is profound.

What simple changes do you wish to make?
