As I get older, I find that I don't let things bother me like they used to.
Today I found out some information that could have ruffled my feathers or could have caused me to react in such a way that I would have been confrontational out of emotion rather than reason.
Instead, I let it roll off and didn't give it another thought. I can't control what others say or do. I only control myself and that lesson has taken me years to learn. Talk about a slow learner!
However, after finally figuring it out, I'm more at peace with myself, and I enjoy life a whole lot more. Do I wish I could go back and tell my 25-year-old self to learn this lesson faster? Sure, but I also know that dwelling on what I didn't do doesn't make any sense either.
Being chill, relaxed, and at peace is just so much better now. Besides, I don't know if 25-year-old me would have listened anyway. She was a bit stubborn. :)
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
