It is easy to focus on our petty little worries and needs, isn't it? Michael Wade has a quote today from George Bernard Shaw that puts things in perspective.
This is the true joy of life; the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, being a force of Nature rather than a feverish selfish little cloud of ailments complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
- George Bernard Shaw
So, stop focusing on your own wants and needs. Get out there and serve a larger purpose. You will be happier.
