“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi

It’s not always easy to see that changing one’s perspective can lead to a happier life. I would often get angry at the world and blame situations for my problems. But these days, I’m trying to be happier and adopt a more accommodating attitude.

Things that don’t affect me directly should not be my concern. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very opinionated and I still stick to my principles.  But, I am trying to understand why people do the things they do and hopefully that let’s me empathize with them. This has made so many things simpler. It has helped me realize that I don’t need to take a negative view on things and I can simply let things go.
