Our happiness or our unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet
the events of life than on the nature of the events themselves.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
Sometimes we get so involved in the little details of life that we forget to look at the big picture. So many of the things that we let upset our days are just little blips during the day. I try to ask myself if what I’m worrying or upset about will really matter tomorrow. Lately, though it seems those little blips just keep piling up. I know that some things shouldn’t be a big deal; but I can’t seem to keep from reacting. This quote reminds me that how I react to those blips affects more than just a moment of my day.
