There are so many moments in life that we can find annoying. Life can be a very re-petitive cycle and we all have that cowork-er that does the same silly thing every day that just bugs us.
Or we are visiting family and by the third day we are ready to leave as almost every-thing with family can usually become a bit annoying.
I was given some great advice by my nephew once. It is up to me to convert the annoyance into amusement. I already know my coworker is going to leave their dirty dishes in the sink so why do I let it bother me. Instead I can just chuckle to myself and think, “Ah yes, everything is as it should and will be.”
I know my family is going to be frustrating after a day or two. My brother will be sar-castic; my Mom will treat me like a young, incapable child and everyone around me will have suggestions on what is best for me. Although none of them really know much about my life or lifestyle.
And it is frustrating. Or it used to be. Be-cause now it is amusing. I go in to the situ-ation knowing that it will be like that and I can almost pat myself on the back know-ingly when it all happens.
My brain has regrouped to find the annoy-ances rather amusing. It makes for a much better head space all day.
Let the little things go and find much more satisfaction and happiness in your life. Don’t worry about and try to control the things that really don’t matter much. Just have fun with it.
