Remember, One Hundred Years from Now, All New People

“My good friend Patti recently shared this bit of wisdom with me that she learned from one of her favorite authors. It has added a great deal of perspective to my life”.

“In the scheme of things, one hundred years isn’t all that long a time. However, one thing’s for sure: A hundred years from now we will all be gone from the planet. And when kept in mind, this idea can fill us with needed perspective during times of crisis or stress”.

“If you have a flat tire or lock yourself out of your house, what’s it going to mean one hundred years from now: How about if someone acted unkindly toward you or if you had to stay up most of the night working? What if your house didn’t get cleaned or your computer breaks down? All of these things and most others are brought into deeper perspective when looked at with a hundred-year view”.
