Many of us forget that it is the little things in life that make it all worthwhile. That is what John Mason focuses on in ‘Time to Think’ as he highlights the grandness of the mundane. Finding beauty in those moments that are often brushed past. While considering the little things, he also attempts to highlight how important it is to learn to trust yourself and not always look to others for the answers.
