I’ve been aggravated all week by things I can’t control. So here’s the thing. I can accept that I can’t change them………..or I can keep on being annoyed. I’m trying really hard to accept………..and ignore………what I can’t change.
I can’t stop stores from putting out Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving – but I can refuse to decorate my home, or do any shopping, or talk about Christmas, or make plans …………until I’m ready. I can unsubscribe from facebook friends who start talking about it before I want to hear about it.
I can’t control the weather. I can stop watching the news more than once a day, I can ignore dire predictions of a winter to end all winters (Oh, my GOD, we’re all GONNA DIE!).
I can’t control the stupidity on other forums I read. But I don’t have to respond.
Maybe if I can remember that it’s not up to me, I won’t get so pissed off when people don’t do what I think they should.
