I read this question the other day: If you had $86,400 and someone stole $10, would you be upset and throw away the remaining $86,390 to go after the person hoping you could get the $10 back? Or would you just forget it, move on and live? Right, move on and live. Well the piece went on to say we all have 86,400 seconds in a day… and not to let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin our remaining 86,390. In thinking about this, I realized that somehow it’s easier to imagine not getting upset about the $10 than it is to imagine being okay with someone being rude (or whatever label you’d like to use) or losing our joy over a situation that we deemed as “wrong.” Why is it we can so easily lose our cool? It’s like our brains move to automatic anger when someone cuts us off in traffic, or is verbally out of line… or anything doesn’t go the way we think it should go. Weird! I have decided the next time I feel anger bubbling up… I am going to stop and picture my health, joy and peace as puzzle pieces of those 86,400 seconds and keep them all for myself!
