30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 24

Day 24: Something You've Learned

I don't know what it is - just growing up, being a wife or a mommy, or just being tired after all these years of letting things get to me...but the most important thing I have learned is that you have to let things go!!! 

Honestly - things that would have bothered me years ago - even as recent as one or two years ago - today, I am just like, "Really? It's just not that big a deal - it doesn't bother me!" If it doesn't directly affect me or my family in a negative way I've learned that if I just tell myself that it isn't important - then it isn't important!!

I can't remember exactly what it was right now, but about a week or two ago I came to this realization when someone was telling me about something someone did (now if that isn't vague enough for ya) and normally my response would have been something along the lines of, "No way - I cannot believe they did that. That's just ridiculous...blah, blah, blah." Instead, my response was more to the liking of "Really?" b/c I just didn't care. It didn't bother me. I chose not to let it bother me.

I guess it's the old saying of you have to choose your battles! (Actually, I tell Michael that when he is trying to get Emma to do something & they are arguing about it!! LOL - I mean, is it worth it to argue over it?? Really?  ) I mean, life is going to throw so many things at you as it is, if you get all hot & bothered over ALL of it, you'll be too tired to enjoy any of the good stuff!!

  1. Geez I could not agree more with this! How true!!! I have always struggled with this... why do I hold on to things that happened years ago? What's in the past is in the past right??!!! Thanks for sharing this ;)

  2. Yes, Im right there with you! Letting it go right now, bhaha ;)

  3. I have a hard time just letting go, but it is getting better every day! Hopefully that is something that will come easier to me as I get older!

  4. oh man, ain't that the truth. this made me think of one i didn't post but i hold true to every day and that is, it's NOT ABOUT YOU! usually the "let it go" one goes hand in hand with the "it's not about you" one because we only get upset because we're so self-centered! :)
