Just let it go
I’ve been away from the Internet for a few days now because I’ve had to take some personal time off from work and help care for my family. Because of that, I’ve been far more stressed than I normally am.
In addition to training a puppy, I’ve been tasked with helping my wife and managing the household. It’s been a difficult period, to say the least.
And in times like that, often I let the little things — small annoyances, tiny setbacks, minor headaches — get the better of me.
And that was happening this time, too. A lot.
That was when the realization happened: I had to let it go. That’s right, just let the stress melt away. Sometimes, we forget that (OK, I forget it, at least). So it’s important that I remember that even when all of the little things don’t go my way, I’m still OK. Just let it go.
It’s so easy to forget, yet just as easy to enact: Let it go. Don’t worry about it. It’s just a small thing, and it’ll be fine, as long as you don’t dwell on it.
There are some lessons that are definitely worth re-learning.
