“Si exagerásemos nuestras alegrías, como hacemos con nuestras penas, nuestros problemas perderían importancia.”

Anatole France

I love this quote so much I have it taped up at work, at home and I think I had it in my car for awhile. It says that if we exaggerated our joys the way we do our sorrows our problems wouldn’t seem as important. Sorry I’m really bad at translating even though I do read and speak Spanish. But how true is that? When something goes wrong it’s so easy to blow it up out of proportion. It’s almost a habit. (At least for me) Sometimes we need to calm down, step back and put things in their proper perspective. I know I do.

Here’s to a good week of exaggerating happiness! Happy Monday!
