Let’s say you have $86,400 and someone stole $10: would you be so upset that you throw the balance of $86,390 away just to get back at the person that took the $10? Or, would you just get on with life? Of course, realize that the $10 is really nothing in the bigger picture and you choose to move on.

We have 86,400 seconds in every day so don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the rest of the 86,390 remaining seconds. Don’t sweat the small stuff; life is bigger than that.

There are 86,400 seconds in a day. It’s up to you to decide what to do with them.
