From an actual conversation I had with my sister:

KelseyAre you ever just touching your face and it’s like really oddly sore over a part of it and you’re like OMG I have face cancer!! And then you find a giant forming zit nearby and you’re like, phew! cause it is just a zit. 
CrissieUmmmm I usually just think – NOOOOOOOO! NOT A ZIT! 

Kelsey:Well, think of this as an example of why to appreciate things like zits. It’s like a metaphor for life.

While this is a rather outlandish example (face cancer, Kelsey? Really?) at the root of it is a rather profound thought. I’m not suggesting we go through life expecting the worst so we can be thrilled by the not-so-bad, I’m just saying maybe a melt down isn’t necessary when the little things go wrong.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. They’re only zits after all.

    Kelsey WOULD think she had face cancer.
