The Little Moments

We all have those moments in life that when they are over we can only look back and have a want to relive them. They are usually the big moments in our lives that deal with life changing or monumental events. Due to to their vastness and greatness it is hard to not want to relive them. However, they are usually far apart from each other and scarce. A person usually has so many in a year. That is why I do not think it is the big moments that deserve the attention, but sometimes it is the small ones that do.

As the timer that is my high school career is coming to closer and closer to the end, it is hard to not want more of these big moments. As the "end" draws near a person wants to go out with a bang, some event that was worth the ride. Not only something that people will remember that person for but also something that person will never forget. I disagree though. Sure the big moments will cause the biggest responses and reactions but the little moments are, if not more, as important.

A friend of mine once told me "it doesn't matter what you are doing, but who you are doing it with," and I agree. Though big set piece events can be cool and fun, it is the intimate moments that leave the most impact. It is when we truly are ourselves and really connect with others. There is no big thing to pull people away in the small moments. It is just people being people and those are some of the moments that we hold on forever. The movie Zombieland had a list of rules to live by and one of those rules was Rule 32, enjoy the little things. As time in many senses draws nearer to the end try to enjoy the little things. Though they might not be as life changing as the big events they are more common and truly are special. You might not realize it at first, but looking back they are the moments that define us and the ones that leave our impact, and the impact of others on us.
