Life is stressful.
Life is just plain sucky, on the whole.
Can we all agree on that?
But not 100% of the time.
Probably like 80% of the time it's this way.
But, 20% of the time:
It's well... laughable.
Today, my goal is to talk about
Not Sweating the Small Stuff.
Being able to laugh at yourself and horrible situations.
We always have heard,
"Don't cry over spilled milk."
But, I bet you money, if you're a Mama like me, if your kid spills a glass of anything (other than water) that you are going "JEEZ! BE MORE CAREFUL!"
But, in the end, the floor/carpet will get cleaned, and the stain may remain... but heck! It's just a hiccup of stress.
I need to remember this the most.
We have to laugh more.
I think the more you laugh and smile..
The less things will affect you personally.
Lives can be unnecessarily filled with drama.
The type of drama that makes you freak out, obsess, and stress over.
If you laugh about it, and remove yourself from it...
It can't own you.
You will not be burdened by it.
It's not really an easy task.
A lot of the time, these nuances occur, and they feel like the last straw.
The "last straw" is such a weird term.
Is it really the last thing that's going to kill us?
Our temper, yes.
Our lives, NO!
We need to realize (myself included) that there is no Final Straw.
The Final Straw, we should think of, is the end of our existence.
Anyone with me on this?
Even if you're crying.
Even though you're fuming.
Even if you're tired.
The sun will rise tomorrow, and you will feel so much better if you let yourself laugh... at yourself... the situation.... the stupidity of the drama.
