just ducky

This week I've been working on not letting things get to me. Things that are mostly little things, and things that are beyond my control. Things like... the actions of others, whether purposely directed at me or not. It's very easy for me to let myself become offended when those around me do things that violate what I perceive as "my" space, or do or plan something that infringes on the way my mind had planned how my day was supposed to go. But something I have come to realize in recent weeks is that when I get all upset and worked up about those things it only hurts me. Well, it hurts me and then in turn, my turmoil affects my husband and daughter (in a not good way). One day in the middle of this week, I felt as if I had had a revelation about all this and I spent the day making a conscious effort to let any situation that arose (whether real or only perceived) roll off me like water off a duck's back. The effects of this attitude were incredible. So many opportunities for me to inwardly fume presented themselves to me that I wanted to laugh. But I didn't take the bait. It was one of the best days I've had in a long time. And at the end of the day, when my husband came home, I was not cranky and frustrated, but was able to greet him cheerfully and happily. (at least, I think I did.) ;) Now if only I can remember to have that attitude more often...
