After reading Chris Kyle‘s book American Sniper there was a quote at the end of the book that has helped me a lot when life throws little complications my way. I find this quote especially helpful as the holiday season tends to stress out many of us and we are anxious about what the new year brings. We need to keep in mind all of our blessings and how things could be infinitely worse if we had to walk a mile in another person’s shoes.

On page 430 Kyle writes, “When people ask me how the war changed me, I tell them that the biggest thing has to do with my perspective. You know all the everyday things that stress you here? I don’t give a shit about them. There are bigger and worse things that could happen than to have this tiny little problem wreck your life, or even your day. I’ve seen them. More. I’ve lived them.”
