small things I've sweat on that I refuse to sweat about anymore

Whew! That was a pretty long title.

First off, thank you for all those that sent their condolences. As much as I appreciate it, I would appreciate your prayers more ... for us, for his soul, and for his family. Saturday morning will be his funeral so I don't see myself blogging on the weekend. This is the first wake I've attended and the first funeral so I'm seeing that in addition to my missing him, I'd probably be a train wreck. So no blogging for a few days.

In light of what happened, I have come to realize that there really are some things in life that we give too much importance on that we shouldn't. I actually have bought the book Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and I've picked up some things here and now but I know that there are still things that I stress over that I shouldn't.

Here's my list. See if you can relate or if I'm totally crazy.
  1. traffic (I'm learning to not stress over it, realizing that there is nothing that can be done save for getting a flying car which does not exist.)
  2. dust (no matter how many times you clean the house, there is still dust. Just keep to a minimum.)
  3. getting my feet wet when its raining (I know, its crazy but I really really hate that icky feeling. This is one thing I can't seem to get over.)
These are my big 3. What things do you sweat about?


  1. Too many to list, but the bigger ones are when the kids are at someone's house and I'm not there (hope they don't get hurt) or when one of the kids run ahead of me when we go out walking (please don't cross the street).

  2. You have our prayers. I learnt a long time ago not to sweat the small stuff and I don't - too many things outside of our control. I accept life and people for who and what they are. It's better that way and I can honestly say the moment I realised that, everything fell into place and life became much easier!

  3. Life is indeed too short to sweat out things not worth it.


Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."

Showering you with unicorn poop so you'd always stay magical! Heart heart!
