Would you rather be stuck in traffic caused by a fallen tree, or be the one who’s car had the tree fall on?
This talk was spurred obviously by my frustratingly delayed commute to work. Given my commute is only about 8 minutes, but it turned into 25 minutes, which really annoyed me.
Until I got closer to the reason why there was traffic, and then instantly I changed my attitude. I would rather be in traffic than have my car totaled by a fallen tree.
I think the key idea here is this: there’s always something worse that could have happened.
Also that #gratitude goes a long way in how you see your day going. Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day is solely dependent upon your attitude or mindset.
