Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff …

I got an email today that … well, it kind of irked me. By the tone, the person behind it (whom I’ve never met) was having a real bad day. But they took it upon themselves to take it out on ME by blasting me for something I said in one of my blog post, which they obviously didn’t agree with …

My urge was to sit right down and defend myself from this irrational, emotionally charged attack.  But I restrainied myself … I stepped back a bit so I could put a little perspective on things before getting myself caught up in another frustrating and frivilous email debate with a total stranger.

A while back, I got an email forwarded to me that was circulating around (Thanks Gerard!). You may have seen it. I keep it in my inbox for moments just like this. I find it helps to put a little planetary perspective on my little daily aggrevations … a great reminder … “dont sweat the small stuff!

Look at How Big Earth is!

I mean, well maybe it’s not THAT big …

Ahem …

Beyond our Earth Sun Moon little corner, it’s a BIG Universe …

Antares is the 15th Brightest Star in Our Sky.

It’s more than 1000 Light years away.

NOW HOW BIG ARE YOU?

Try and wrap your head around this …

It’s a Hubble Telescope Ultra Deep Field Infrared view of a slew of glaxies …

BILLIONS OF LIGHT-YEARS AWAY

Here’s a close-up of one of the darkest regions of that photo above …

NOW HOW BIG ARE YOU?

AND HOW BIG ARE THE THINGS THAT UPSET YOU TODAY?

LET’S KEEP LIFE IN PERSPECTIVE.

AND DONT SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF!

I think I’ll just delete that email now and get on with more important things :O)
