Life is about this Big Picture, that I believe, we rarely think about but are constantly consumed with.
Every decision, every experience is just one puzzle piece in the Big Picture.
So do you make your decisions with a Big Picture perspective
Do you make your decisions for the now, realizing it could, will, might change your Big Picture?
It seems like a vicious cycle.
You have to live for the now, because well it is now.
But you have to keep the Big Picture in mind
Does this particular situation, decision, experience work you towards or away from your Big Picture?
I am realizing how hard life is.
Its hard to make the right decision
but, its even harder to know what the right decision is...
I don't know exactly how my Big Picture will turn out.
I know some of my puzzle pieces that will complete it are not the same size...
Some pieces arebigger because they have helped mold me into the best version of myself
Some pieces are smaller because they just put a small shift in my direction towards my ultimate goal
I imagine my Big Picture as one of those collage pictures that you can take small pictures of your life, and if you look at them individually the are something different, but when you step back and look at it, you see a different picture completely...
I don't know what my Big Picture looks like
So, I will live in the moment, realizing, these small moments now have a BIG impact later...
