Rule #32: Enjoy the little things
Any of you ever see Zombieland? Well last weekend we got together with two other friends and watched this movie and although I had seen it before, I had totally forgotten that this rule existed. The moment this rule came on screen Faith and I exchanged a look. It was made for us.
In the movie, they are in the middle of a zombie invasion and one of the guys, Tallahassee, is obsessed with finding Twinkies. All he wants is to eat a Twinkie, in the middle of all the solitude and of fighting for his life, this guy REALLY wants a twinkie. At the end of the movie he FINALLY gets a twinkie and his face is priceless! This is like the best day of his life!
If there's one thing we love is the little things, we love to get them and give them. They really do mean the world to us, when we receive them we instantly text each other, it's just one of the many ways that God shows us how loved we are. A smile, a hug, an encouraging text or note, those are little things that blow our minds! Or like the time that I had been telling Faith that I was craving tacos, I told her that for like a week and the next time she saw me....she had brought me a taco :) Or like the time my friend Megan brought me cheese cause I had told her I loved cheese. lol. See! LITTLE things! Enjoy them! Never overlook an act of kindness because of it's size, God knows how much time and effort was put into that small seemingly non significant things. I can't tell you how many times I've been down and something so tiny has turned my day around.
The best part is being able to give back, to see someone smile. That can turn my day around too :) Knowing that God has used me to make that person's life just a little brighter. This page is a big thing that we are trying to do for all of you, for you guys to feel loved and to know that you are not alone. But so many times with one little act of kindness we can turn someone's life around.
Enjoy the little things :) They are there for a reason. So your mission is to LOOK for the little things that are thrown your way and if you feel inspired to do something nice for someone, go for it!! If you need ideas, talk to us!
Unlike a lot of other rules, you are gonna want to follow this rule.
