I do not sweat the small stuff

I do not sweat the small stuff

Little things that are happening around me cause me no concern.

I maintain a calm feeling in my daily life and I can handle the little things that go awry around me. Often when things happen that are out of my control I can look at them and laugh at the irony of the situation. I have room in my life for a few stray incidents.

Life is interesting and things happen every day that are out of my control. This is okay; it adds to the interest. I can remain calm when little incidents happen because they do not hinder my day or my life in any way that I cannot manage.

Often the little incidents that happen are kind of funny. Today I can find the humor in these situations. I can remain calm throughout these situations because I have a base of calmness that surrounds me.

I seek out a calm state of mind on a daily basis; this helps me to avoid unnecessary worry over the little things that happen in life. I surround myself in a blanket of calmness by getting the rest that I need, avoiding over-scheduling, and allowing myself to enjoy my hobbies. This blanket of calmness protects me from life's little upsets.

Today I will make sure I am surrounded by my protection of calmness and will be able to endure life's little quirks and upsets. I will remain calm, regardless of what may come. I will learn to laugh instead of worry.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    Have I covered myself in a blanket of calmness?
2.    Have I sought out the humor in life’s little upsets?
3.    Have I taken an initiative to remain calm?

Communication of my feelings is important

Because I know that relationships cannot grow without understanding, I share my honest feelings with the special people in my life.

I know I run the risk that the other person may misunderstand or perhaps even get angry, but I am confident that we can work through these hitches and use them to develop deeper relationships.

I have let go of the tendency to only admit to those feelings that could be classified as nice. It's a wonderful thing to be happy, content and peaceful. When I do feel that way, I am more than pleased to share the good feelings all around.

I also recognize that life is often far too challenging to be in a perpetual happy state and I am unwilling to pretend for the sake of keeping the waters calm.

I strive for authenticity in my relationships. I want those I love to feel like they can come to me when they are hurt or upset. I set a precedent by being open with them and by sharing my fears, worries, and struggles along the way.

I realize that some people in life are merely being polite when they ask how I’m doing. I am careful with my heart and don't expose my inner self to people unless I know that they genuinely care about me.

Once I am comfortable with others, I am willing to take a risk in sharing my feelings because I know that it is the only way to develop authentic, supportive relationships.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    Do I dare to be honest within the relationships that truly matter to me?
2.    Do I set a precedent for honesty by my words and actions?
3.    Am I trustworthy when others confide in me?
