I had a great Sunday.
It was one of those days where everything was just surreal, but really nice. I can’t share exactly what happened, for many reasons, but it was wonderful.
And then a few people attempted to spoil that wonderful day which diverted my focus from it.
I didn’t fully appreciate how wonderful that Sunday was until two days later, when I was getting bored on the commute to and from work. I killed time by recalling the events one by one, and realized how much I wasted it by allowing myself to get affected by those negative forces.
So many terrible things have been happening in the world lately. It’s getting more and more difficult to stay positive that those little happy things that we usually take for granted become more and more precious.
I am taking this as a lesson in life. If something good happens to you, never, ever take it for granted. Treasure and appreciate anything that makes you happy, no matter how big or small it was.
And never waste a precious moment by letting other people’s bitterness ruin it for you.
