If I were to give you a choice between your favorite beverage, say, a Shasta Black Cherry Soda, or a 2007 Mustang Cobra (whatever car floats your boat, ok). Which one would you pick?
All together now: Uhhhhh-duhhhhhhhh! You'd pick the car, right?
Let's say that in order to get the car you'd have to give up your daily tasty beverage forever, would you still do it? Would you even give up that soda to the dollar amount of the car in order to get your prized wheels?
Are you willing to forfeit little joys in life for something big? Which one is the greater joy, in the end? Do you focus only on big things and miss out on appreciating those small, everyday moments of bliss?
I bet you have not had much of the big things if you are obsessed with them. They have had you. The biggest part is that you've never stopped to enjoy the little things along the way.
The point about big vs. little is mute; rather, are you able to see past your big pie in the sky, your hail mary, your slippery treasures?
Can you see the moon with arr of its heavenry gwory? (Thank you, Bruce)
Wow, I detect a paradox!
