It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important. 

(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)

There is no “big thing” in life that has not started out as a “little thing” ….  and so often the little things are overlooked and not realised.

We need people in our lives who understand that sometimes it is the little things that matter to us … we need them to listen to our little concerns so we know we can trust them with bigger stuff.

When I get to the point that I am having to repeat something to someone over and over again I realise that they are just not interested in listening, it is not that they are not capable, they just do not care enough to do so.

It is time to walk away then.
