Quote from Washington Irving

I’ve been overwhelmed with a lot of things lately. Work has been crazy and keeps me in the office till late most weekdays working on last minute proposals and request. Weekends are the same; if I'm not at the office then I’m running around like a headless chicken, catching up on household chores, catching up with family members and running around doing everything except giving myself me time.

I was feeling sorry for myself for the late hours in the office and started picking on small things. I allowed the small things to get to me and started barking at almost everyone and everything. Its no excuse and I’m not proud of it but I thought it was quite apt that I stumbled on this quote while I was researching on Washington Irving:

‘Great minds have purposes; little minds have wishes. Little minds are subdued with misfortune; great minds rise above them’

So here’s to not sweating the small stuff and hoping that with a little bit of focus and purpose, I’ll rise above the challenge.
