100 Words: Don’t Miss the Small Stuff

details eye“God is in the details.” – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (thanks, Rebecca!)

Want to live more fully? With more gratitude and connection? Want to live life as art? Notice the details. Without wanting them to be different, notice every little thing.

The secret (or at least a secret) to making life more alive and full of wonder is making much of something small. Whenever we pay attention to the details, we deepen intimacy – with a sensation, a movement, a piece of music, another person, yourself.

Live your life as art. Notice the details and be willing to be astonished.
