“What’s wrong with you? “ I asked.
“Some jerk cut me off in traffic this morning on my way to work and I couldn’t forget about it. It ruined my entire day. I kept thinking about him.”
“Listen son, if you woke up tomorrow and found you suddenly had $86,400 in your savings account and somebody unfairly took $10 from it would you spend the balance of $86,390 trying to get it back or would you just blow it off and deal with life with what you have?”
“Dad, if I had that much money I wouldn’t sweat the $10. “
“Exactly son. You may not have that much money but you have 86,400 seconds in a day. Just because someone ruins 10 of those seconds doesn’t mean you should let them ruin the rest of your day.”
