What an amazing speech regarding our growth as humans in this little/big world. David Foster Wallace reminds us here in his commencement speech for a graduating class at Kenyon College (cleverly put into video by The Glossary) that we have to choose to see the bigger picture.
We talk so much in life about priorities and discovering our passion for life. But sometimes we forget that we have to discover what matters on a small level. The only way to survive without being psychotically angry is to change the way you think about the annoyances of everyday life.
You get to decide what has meaning and what doesn’t.
