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!!
JUST LET IT GO!
