Today has been one of those days when I wish I could just go to bed, pull the covers over my head and forget the whole thing happened.
However, I can’t do that no matter how much I might want to and honestly, it doesn’t accomplish anything.
I know from personal experience how easy it is to become so wrapped up in the little things, especially when many of them seem to be negative, that we lose site of the bigger picture. In fact I fell into this trap myself again today, but unlike times past, it just took gaining some perspective to realize that others are dealing with issues much bigger, much more immediate, much more life threatening and I doubt they would appreciate or even understand someone throwing a pity party over what is really a lot of pointless crap.
Part of this comes from reading the words of others who are dealing with things I have been fortunate to avoid to this point. The loss of a marriage, of friends and family. The loss of a job or a place to live. Then there is the greatest loss of all, the loss of life.
In the face of such things, I find I can face my own little issues with a clearer perspective.
