Little Things

“A Quien Cuida La Peseta Nunca Le Falta un Duro”

J: Is there anything else you’d like to share?

B: One more saying…one my mama told to me when I was little, and I keep it with me today.

J: Please.

B: A quien cuida la peseta nunca le falta un duro. It means take care of little things first and big things will take care themselves.

J: In other words, don’t make mountains out of molehills?

B: I suppose, yes, you can say so. My mama always tell me, look after your pennies and keep them in order. The pounds will follow, always. I do this to this day, and I am very happy with my savings in the world.

J: Thank you very much for sharing with me!

I love this saying tremendously as it encompasses my thoughts about life. If you always take care of the little things, and stay present minded, then the future things, the larger issues that come your way in life will take care of themselves. Something to live by and I thank my informant for sharing this with me!
