"What would your current frustrations look like from the vantage point of the final days of your life?"
The above quote is taken from the book Open Your Mind. Open Your Life. A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom.
Have you ever noticed how people seem caught up in the minutiae of the day? More importantly, have you ever noticed how you seem to be caught up in the minutiae of the day?
I love today's quote because, to me, it reeks of wisdom. We ponder and fret over a myriad of unimportant things that we can't seem to let go of. It's as if these little details somehow give meaning to our days. My guess is that we ponder and fret over this small stuff because the really important things seem too overwhelming to deal with.
The next time you find yourself all wound up in some small detail, repeat this quote to yourself. Better yet, write it on a note card and tape it to your bathroom mirror so it is one of the first things you see when you wake in the morning and one of the last things you see before you hit the sack. In the grand scheme of things, what will it really matter?
IT IS ALL IN YOUR HEAD!
