It's true that small things make a life. Leftovers, hugs, mistakes, TV nights and no alarm mornings.
A great pizza, a kiss fueled from pure and honest love.
Big things make a life too. You need to build off the small things to make room for the big things.
Like dignity. A touch of independence. Absence of fear.
Sometimes you cannot make it from the small things to the big things. You just cannot build that bridge. Life gets in the way for most of us; too heavy, too impenetrable, too limiting, too damn unfair.
Stand on the small things and reach for the big things.
Do not ever settle for a small life and a smaller death.
