I was just about to take a long breath and complain about the basic minor burdens of every day life. It has been another long day ending with a long Skype call to America where it’s their lunch time and my bedtime! Then I remembered coming across this video called This Is Water in which the point is made that we are not the center of our own small universe. And we can exercise choice to think differently rather than, when the chips are down, go to our center-of-the-universe default setting. The animated video uses the first part of the now famous commencement speech given by the late David Foster Wallace. The Guardian published the entire speech back in 2008 soon after David Wallace died. He took his own life. Tragic story.
Hat tip to Future Health 2020 where I found the video.
