When the world is bringing you down, don’t get mad. Get silly. Learn to find the fun in everything.
In this video from the TED YouTube channel, comedian James Veitch shares his personal account of dealing with email spam and his attempts to unsubscribe from mailing lists. It’s funny, amusing and Veitch caps it all off with some of the best advice you’ll ever hear:
“If ever you feel weighed down by the bureaucracy, and often mundanity of modern life, don’t fight the frustration. Let it be the catalyst for whimsy.”
Wise words for you to keep in mind the next time something starts to get to you. It’s also a refreshing reminder that we can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control how we react.
