Sweating the small stuff is what makes all the difference when it comes to taking responsibility and being accountable for our actions.
Whether it’s bothering to walk that extra ten paces to put the rubbish in the bin; take an extra five to find a proper parking space rather than double-park; make the effort to leave any place in the same state (or better) than we found it; make the effort to keep small promises such as “yes, I’ll take the rubbish out love”, etc., etc…
It’s these small acts in our lives that go to show that we are taking responsibility for ourselves and our environment.
The same goes for accepting any consequences that come as a result of our actions
If you don’t take that extra five and find a proper parking space, don’t bitch and moan if you get slapped with a parking ticket
If you don’t take out the rubbish or tidy up after yourself, don’t hit back at your partner for “nagging” when they gently (or none-too-gently) remind you of the forgotten promise.
If you want to make your world a better place, start with yourself and sweat the small stuff by have a sense of responsibility about it.
