One of the things I like to do, in the midst of chaos, is to ask myself: If I were going to die today, and my life flashed before my eyes, is this incident big enough to make an appearance? Almost always, the answer is no. It then leads me into wondering why we make such a big deal about things. Some of the answers I've come up with are: to make our lives seem more interesting than they are, because we can't handle change, it makes a better story to re-tell...I was soooo scared, upset, whatever, and it puts us firmly in the center of attention. That's a spot so many revere. Sometimes it brings our fears to light. It's an interesting topic to think about. Thanks Celtaur.
