Life can't help but be life. There is a saying "don't sweat the small stuff" but can we really help it when constantly the small stuff continues to hang around like a pesky rain cloud? Well, we can't but with the right attitude, we can.
How? This may sound easier said than done but with persistence, then habit, we can begin to look at ourselves like rubber, letting things bounce off of us without a scrape, no matter how small or large the pings.
I've been practicing how to count my blessings. Counting your blessings helps a lot. When someone vindictive picks on your imperfections, it really isn't you that is the problem, it is he or she. He or she might be going through something challenging in his/her life and you just happened to be in the line of fire. Don't ever attribute other people's attitudes about what you've done because 9 times out of 10 it is about them not you. Let it become the wind that blows past you and pray that God blesses that person to make them whole again. If you happen to be on the other side of that equation, all I can suggest is to STOP! Analyze what it is that is bothering you and give it to God. God wants your problems because He wants to show you how powerful He can be to fix it for you. Think about it.
Until my next rant... HAVE A GREAT WEEK, and of course Love one another!! Love you, mean it!
