Instant perspective and reminders

At the end of a particularly rough day recently, I wrote to a couple of friends and shared what I was feeling.

One of them wrote back and shared the story of a day that was at least a 100 times tougher than mine.

Instant perspective.

And that’s leaving aside the fact that we all have very good lives.

The conclusion to that exchange was all of us reminding each other of a few truths we often talk about.

You never know if a good day is a good day.

This – both the good and the bad – will pass.

Focus on what you control. Keep plugging away.

I can never have enough reminders of these truths.
