There's a ton of bad stuff going on in the world and it's getting all the attention. The problem is, we are putting so much emotional effort into it that it's dragging us down.
If we could fix all the problems tomorrow, would we be happy? Maybe for a day.
When we focus on the whole of humanity's issues instead of what's in front of us, we go nowhere.
Go home, love your family, and be present.
