"The little things? The little moments? They aren't little.” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
When I first opened my brick-and-mortar store I filled it with artwork, comfort items, books, journals – lots of the same things I now sell in my e-commerce store. My intention was to offer inspiration to folks in whatever manner best suited them.
One area I totally underestimated was the impact of – what I call - the little things. As people would come in and tell their stories of a friend or relative in need of a pick-me-up or thought-provoking word or “just something to help them feel better,” I found myself going to the token table – the place where we kept the many different types of tokens and stones we sold. I found myself expressing a new belief and saying, "Sometimes the smallest thing is all that's needed to help someone feel better."
And that is why we carry guardian angel tokens, engraved stones, pop-open cards, soapstone hearts, and Shannon Martin magnets (to name a few little things). Because the little things are really big things when it comes to bringing meaning and inspiration to someone (or to yourself).
