A Problem or a Fact of Life

A thought I need to remind myself everyday:
If EDSA traffic is a problem then I expect somebody would go out there and solve it because every problem has a solution. (Unfortunately not for now).
If EDSA traffic is not just a problem but also a fact of life; then I need to make adjustments and deal with it, work around it and should never allow it to be a reason why I show up late for work.
Life offers both problems and facts of life. We respond accordingly.
