Proper perspective

We were one number away from winning $2,500 in a raffle last night. I was up most of the night replaying how it should have been different to allow us to win. I woke up exhausted this morning to news of the earthquake and tsunami in the Pacific. After my husband put the previous evening in perspective, how we actually had a 200% return on our investment even though we didn’t win the big prize and how we shouldn’t let an event that was basically chance out of our control consume any more of our brain energy, I was able to see how unimportant is was in light of people whose lives have been devastated by the natural disaster. It is all a matter of perspective. No events had changed, just the way I looked at it. Thanks again honey.
