Ever since I can remember I have been putting others before me. Couple of times it has gotten to the point where people simply expect it from me. This is when I start to loose it. I feel left out and every single thing gets me down. I guess this is the reason why I tend to take things so personal.
I guess my dad knows me better than I thought. Back in Christmas he gave me a book called “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff” and he even told me not to “take it personal”. My old man. (I hope I don’t get in trouble for the old part of that statement, LOVE YOU DAD!!)
I have to often be reminded that small stuff are indeed small, that the only reason they get me down is because I give them the power to. Of course things are easier said than done. I get so easily frustrated that these small things crawl up my leg like a bug infestation.
It all goes down on a never ending spiral. One day I am right on top. Feeling like I can rule the world. Feeling confident that I can do anything I set my self to. And then a few days later I am at the bottom digging a whole deeper and deeper. Feeling sorry for my self.
Thankfully either myself or me slaps me back into conscience and I am back on top. To rule it all.
I just have to keep reminding myself not to take the world so seriously but with a grain of salt. That life is short, time flies, and life, well, there’s only one. No one else is in charge of making me happy but me…extra hearts are welcome. But at the end we only have ourselves.
So, today I am happy. I feel good. In a good mood.
Today, I can rule the world!
