The Little Things

Happy new month guys! The year is going by so fast, we're in March already. I hope this new month is lovely for you. It's certainly going to be for me, I turn 18 on the 23rd and I'm really looking forward to that haha. 

Last summer, I put up a review about Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso, the book I believe all girls should read (in my opinion). You can read my review here. One thing that Sophia said in the book that stood out to me was her emphasis on 'the little things.' We all have goals and aspirations for our lives, we all have a big picture in our minds that we aspire to. But sometimes, we forget that this picture is made up of tiny pixels. The little things always add up to the big things. Get the little things right and the picture becomes clearer. 




As you guys know, I applied to four medical schools and I've had two interviews so far. I almost missed my second interview because I didn't take care of a 'little thing'. I usually clear out my emails, I hate having tons of emails just sitting there you know? So I scroll slowly through them, read and save the important ones and then delete the rest.  For some reason, that particular week I was very lazy so I didn't go through them like I normally would. By the weekend, the emails had piled up and I decided to finally delete them. I don't know why I did it but I scrolled to the very bottom of the list and that's when I saw my interview invitation. I was so  amazed and my heart skipped a beat when I realized how close to deleting it I had come. And I had to reply to the invitation by the following Monday. If I had deleted it, I would have lost that interview. Not taking care of a little thing like clearing my emails almost cost me a very important goal.

So guys, the little things are really important. If your goal is to save $2000 by next January, you're not going to put $2000 all at once in your savings account are you? You're going to save little by little. And slowly but surely, it'll start adding up and you'll be closer to your goal every day. Always remember that: 
Life isn't about the destination, it's about what you did and learned during the journey.
I was reflecting on this during the past week so I decided to share, I hope someone out there finds it useful. xx

  14. Yup, the little things count. If we think about it, oceans are made of drops of water. You might think it's just a small thing you're doing, but when you do it over and over again, it becomes something bigger than you originally thought.

    Best wishes with your med school applications, interviews and everything.
