Great things are done by a series of small
things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh

Life’s lessons often come in very small packages. Little adjustments can make a significant difference. Change doesn’t always have to be huge. An incremental shift can sometimes open a vast space. Oftentimes, it’s the small give-and takes between individuals that can pay the most satisfying dividends to relationship wealth. And when one person is willing to budge even an inch or two, the relationship dynamic is forever changed. More often than not, the other person then eases into their own voluntary counter shifts that double the beneficial alterations. This is how national and global peace arises—one change of heart at a time.

When an avalanche of snow crashes down a
mountainside, it occurs because the snow has moved
a millimeter day by day, until the cumulative
momentum crests over the top.
Tiny movements rearrange the landscape at some point.

My husband recently had a gold crown put on one of his upper back molars. The “new” tooth was fine at first. But for some incomprehensible reason, the tooth became more and more sensitive to chewing food on it. As the tooth’s reactivity heightened, cold items became a painful moment! The tooth was simply not “settling in” properly. Back to the dentist’s chair he went! An x-ray revealed all was well with the tooth itself. A few gentle bites on a plastic stick detected a tiny high spot—the culprit. Once the dentist pinpointed the exact, aggravating place on the new crown, it was a quick and very small adjustment of smoothing to make to the tooth perfect for a return to comfortable chewing. Infinitesimal fine-tuning can bring miraculous results!

Think of some of the many ways in your own experience when a very small alteration made a large difference in the outcome. When your computer screen is not at the proper angle or distance or height, your shoulders and arms get overly tense and tight. You might not even realize it until you end up with a splitting headache. The next day it dawns on you to try a slightly different position, distance, or angle, which is just the ideal alteration for stress-less enjoyment at your computer. It’s amazing! Adding a pinch or two of additional salt or spice to a steaming pot of soup can lead to a more delicious conclusion with happy tummies that say ‘yum, yum.’

Take a moment now to recollect the times in your life when a minute adjustment resulted in a valuable coarse correction. These noteworthy moments often go sadly unnoticed when we are unaware that small can be monumental.

Be faithful in small things because it is
in them that your strength lies.
Mother Teresa
