perspective: Thankful For My Sense Of Perspective & Humor (#8) - 11/16/18 01:28 PM

Q: What is the difference between crisis and inconvenience?
A: Perspective 
Life often gets more complicated than it should be and the ability to keep things in perspective is a wonderful thing.  I am thankful for being able to find the humor in most things and understand there is a lot of inconveniences and annoyances in life and very little crisis.  Actual crisis is a fact of life, though. We all go through them.  If you can find even a little humor in things it helps.

"The difference between crisis and inconvenience is... Perspective."
-Carol Williams

There was a question yesterday in the Q&A section about stress.  We all experience it on various levels throughout life.  Your attitude toward the stresses of life is your perspective.
