Wishing Small

When every New Year rolls around, many of us are tempted to make lofty resolutions or entertain noble aspirations, with the hope that “This year will be different!” Usually, however, our high-reaching dreams are dashed, often just a few days or weeks after we crack open our new calendars.

Certainly we want and aim for positive change in the world. Most of us have prayed for world peace, universal freedom, and an end to disease, suffering, hunger, and poverty. Realistically, though, few of us have the large-scale influence needed to transform the world in these sweeping, profound ways.

Although we may not be able to attain the impossible, we can strive for what is achievable. Each of us has the power to respond to the people, animals, and events in our lives with more compassion, love, tolerance, and peace. Every individual we encounter has a chance to experience serenity, safety, and happiness when they are with us. They can only do so, however, if these are the gifts we choose to offer them.

This New Year, scale back, scale down, and narrow your scope and focus. Instead of wishing big, wish small. When we appreciate the value in making small wishes come true, the big ones will take care of themselves.
