We get so caught up with big and bold. Be seen, be heard, be cheered.
But it’s actually the moments that most people don’t witness that are the most important to a happy life.
It’s reading a book to your kids and giving them a hug and kiss goodnight.
It’s a “how are you doing today?” with a significant other that turns into a long conversation.
It’s being able to sit with ourselves and be stress-free.
Those moments take up the majority of our lives. Those simple, “uneventful” moments almost get forgotten because they are routine.
Maybe we should consider why they are that way and embrace them more. They matter way more than any glorious achievement does.
When we lose people close to us, rarely do we remember their greatest achievements. We remember the small stuff, the little quirks, and the subtle nuance.
We remember the mundane.
Those become the most important memories.
The ones we often take for granted.
