It happens to all of us at one time or another. During this journey we call life, we get overwhelmed by little things, lost in the tiny details or tripped up by the baby steps we're in the middle of.
Sometimes we realise it and correct ourselves right away, but there are a great many of us that don't even notice when we're starting to become engulfed in the minutiae that comes together to form a larger picture in our lives.
But remember that: there's a grander image to see in your life once you breathe, take a few steps back and observe. So yes, there will always be a million little details that can distract us or tempt us to beat ourselves up at any given time, but never lose sight of your bigger picture.
Because that's always there, too.
