An inspirational thought experiment:
“You have 86.400€ in your account and someone stole 10€ from you, would you be upset and throw all of the 86.400€ away in hopes of going back at the person who took your 10€? Or move on and live? You would move on, right? The same way we have 86.400 seconds each day. Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86.390 seconds of your day. Don’t sweat the small stuff, life is bigger than that.”
I struggle so much with overcoming my bad mood and not being upset over little things all day. I don’t want to ruin my day. I wish I could be more easy-going and not take negative occurrences to the heart.
But I am working on it and every day is a new chance to practise my patience and composure. Hopefully this quote will inspire you to see the problem in a different light.
Truth is, many things can potentially ruin your day and they probably will but it’s our responsibility to not let it affect us so much.
P.S.: Realistically speaking, I would be mad if somebody stole money from me. Doesn’t matter if it’s 10€ or 1000€, theft is theft…
