For me, that is. I uttered this phrase, rather glibly, to a co-worker today, in reference to a project we were working on. But then I realized that if only I applied that same thinking to most parts of my life, it would truly put everything into perspective for me.
I was scrambling to put together a post for this week, but everything I came up with just seemed to trite in the shadow of what is happening in Japan right now. I'm taking this week to reflect on the wealth of small pleasures I have in my life that I take for granted every day and to offer up a silent prayer to all those affected by the tragedy in Japan.
The Japan Society in NYC has set up a really easy way to donate. Go here and do what you can.
