But sometimes, there are just things. Annoyances. Bothers. And really, in the big scheme of things, they are little things. But somehow, they irritate and irk and fester and multiply until those little things have turned into big things. And that, I've realized, is why sometimes you have to let the little things go. Deciding they don't matter when they're little is the key. If you continue to acknowledge them when they're little, it gives them fuel to grow, and then they become big. And it's a lot harder to get over the big irritations than the little ones.
I've let a few little things become bigger, lately. In doing so, the biggest irritation becomes myself for letting it get that way in the first place, for allowing the negative to flourish and for feeding the flames with criticism and judgement. So, I'm letting it go. And it's going to take a lot more work to let go now than it would have had I done it when they were just little things. But I know I'm going to feel so.much.better.
Anything you need to let go of? Just a little thing?
