We sometimes become obsessed with something stressful that happened, something someone said, or a situation where we feel we were treated unfairly. Maybe it’s finding a new dent in your care after it’s sat in the parking lot all day.
When we waste time and energy fuming over minor issues, we allow the situation to control and ruin the day.
Often, these are mere moments in time, blown off, perhaps even unknown, by the individual who caused the feelings or the driver too busy to do the right thing.
The next time you obsess about something minor, ask yourself what’s really important in your life. Think of customers, clients, suppliers, family, friends, and others who need us – and we need them.
Compliment a coworker’s accuracy or professionalism; your comment could make their day. Cherish the child who meets you at the door, the spouse who sends their love in a text, or a good friend who has your back.
Don’t obsess over trivial matters, after all, you have a life.
The road is easier together,
