I love this quote and the photo below (from the 1988 film, “Big,” starring a young Tom Hanks and a well established Robert Loggia).
The movie tells the story of a young boy who wishes to become ‘big’ because it seems that everything good can only happen when you’re ‘big.’ (older). He gets his wish and more… and wakes up in an overwhelming world where nothing is familiar and not much is … fun.
That quote and the photo remind me that how we look at something reveals more about us than it does the issue being examined.
Often we make a problem bigger and more powerful than it is by the attention we give to it.
This quote reminds me to slow down and be more patient .. to push away the petty stuff cluttering my days and embrace the joy that is already there …waiting for me.
I wonder if my living room could accommodate a giant piano from FAO Schwartz?
