As time passes, more and more little things manage to get under my skin…. crawling and wiggling its way like a Meth addict’s hallucinations of spiders crawling around under their flesh. When this happens, I am given two choices: focus on these little things, obsess over them, let it ruin my day or remind myself, it’s stupid shit, move on and ignore it.
The wonderful thing is – we are all capable of achieving happiness. It is a matter of conscious decisions to focus on all the things that are going right in life, no matter how big or small. Many of us choose to focus on all things negative for the mere fact that it is just so much easier to focus on all the things that are going wrong. However, when we start choosing to be mentally and emotionally stronger as humans, all the stupid little things cease to matter. The stupid little things cease to have power over our abilities to be happy. All the very big negative things – we begin to accept that it is a temporary moment that will hinder us, and that there is light to guide us away from it.
Today, when anything stupid little thing starts to pick away at your happy bubble. Take a breath, breathe deeply, and remind yourself:
I will not let the stupid little things destroy my happiness. I am bigger, stronger, and more powerful than any situation that is in front of me. I am capable of maintaining homeostasis in a place that is happy, peaceful and blessed.
