No matter how easy going we are, most of us need to blow off a little steam now and then. Perhaps we are a bit frustrated with a project, or maybe we are just overtired and feel the overwhelming urge to throw something because we just can’t get it to work.
Okay, so I admit it. I have a few keyboards around that may or may not be in several pieces from unceremoniously tossing them. (smirk)
Afterwards though, I always end up feeling a bit disappointed in myself because it means I lost my temper. If only for a moment, I was not in control of my emotions.
Why didn’t I walk away from it before it reached that point of no return?
As always, I am a work in progress.
I say that because I am currently typing on a keyboard that is…
kinda missing a foot so it’s a bit, shall we say, crooked right now?
So after spouting off for a bit to a friend that knows just to grin and tease it out of me, I remembered how important it is to know how I respond to certain things, and to use techniques that help me get past those moments.
Because life is just way too short to fuss over the little stuff.
So here I am, at 10:30 at night reminding myself of a few things.
Never miss enjoying the sunset. Walk outside and live in that moment.
Take time to walk every single day just for fun, not for training.
Stop for a moment and hold one of my cats. Listen to their purr.
And never let a day pass without bringing a smile to someone’s face.
So I wonder if they sell disposable keyboards? 🙂
P.S. A special shout out to all my friends who are participating in day nine of the V7N 30 Day Blog Challenge. I know you can do it!
