Have you ever had a bad day and wondered how horrible and big your ‘problem’ has been? Here is another way to think about it:
Look at the bigger picture: What has really happened?
To help you get the scaliness of the big picture think about this: Right now someone somewhere is…
- …driving, hundreds of thousands of people are. The world goes on despite your problem. People will always need to drive.
- …having an argument. This argument could have a life changing outcome. Your problem isn’t life changing, is it? (If it was did you go with your gut feeling? It keeps you right.)
- …being born. This very second new life is entering this world. This life is making someone’s world. Is your problem so big that it stops this from happening, most-likely not.
This could be an exhaustive list but I hope you get the point; your problem is not really a huge problem. Tomorrow is another day, life is going to go on (people are still driving 24/7, having arguments and being born). Next time you have a ‘problem’ think about the big scale, your problem isn’t that big so don’t let it take up a large part of your day, week, month….
We must try to ‘get over it’ and move on. The world moves on, so should we.
