“Be master of your petty annoyances and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things. It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out–it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.”
— Robert Service
What can be done about the petty annoyances of life?
Change the rules. Stop having rules. Realize that there is no right or wrong, except what you decide to make up. It’s just judgement, pure and simple. So, get over it. I guarantee that when you do, your joy meter will spike and continue to soar.
Don’t sweat the small stuff–especially since it truly is small stuff.
I’m Working On Not Sweating ANY Stuff.
Spread Some Joy Today–Probably several things will come up today that in your recent past would have really ticked you off. Today, you get to laugh when they pass by, realizing how freeing it was to let go of the judgement of them. Nice work!
