Several years back I got into a conversation with a colleague about our kids. He told me of how he took his daughters to the circus. He wasn't able to afford it, but decided to go anyway. While they were at the circus, he looked over at his oldest daughter. The look on her face was one of utter contentment and delight. Seeing his daughter's face caused my colleague to get all choked up. The price of admission was redeemed through a priceless moment that my colleague shared with his daughter.
Yup, we have days filled with irritating emails, ugly meetings, and demanding customers. What's really important, though, is to take stock in what really matters in life. For me it is my faith and my family. If those two things are going strong then everything else is a distant third.
Take a few minutes to think about what really matters to you and that you're taking time to delight in those things. Don't let the nagging irritations of the day bring you down.
