Since it is impossible for a person to completely be spared the difficulties and misfortunes of life, it makes sense to accept them with patience, tolerance - and a positive attitude. This ensures living a good life, both for practical reasons and because it is the Torah's attitude.
Today, when something - even small - goes wrong, take a deep breath and accept the reality with joy.
