two and a half hours

just a small realization today.

i was stuck underground in the subway for two and a half hours, switching trains, plopping between stations, tons of people around me. normally i’d be pissed, really annoyed, and the whole day would swirl around the anger. but today i just read my book and thought, “how wonderful, i got an extra hour of reading in today.”

you can be in control of your feelings, and you can say YES to unpleasantries life throws at you, and you can be surprised.
