Three Things

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.” 
-Maya Angelou

This is one of my favorite quotes.  So simple, yet so true.  There are so many people in this world that get upset over such little things in life.  And I often wonder, are those that sweat the small stuff truly happy?  If one is able to let themselves get so frustrated, angry and upset over little things, perhaps there are bigger issues at hand that are manifesting themselves in small day to day activities.  

I’ve lost my bag (and our carseat) several times while traveling and yes, it is frustrating, but I know that no one intentionally tried to have me lose my bag…….sometimes things happen.  Is it really worth ruining someone’s day over something so small and trivial as lost luggage?  I mean really the person at the baggage claim wasn’t the one that actually lost the bag.  They are just there trying to help remedy a situation where someone else made a mistake.

So this holiday season, I ask you this…….before you sweat the small stuff in life, ask yourself, is it really worth it?
