I'm Over It

I've done a post like this before as we all have things we rant about. Trust me, with a kid in university, one in high school and a middle schooler, their numerous activities, apprehensions and homework pressures, not to mention, my own -- worrying is a BIG part of my life! However, like I've said before, I know that I need to let go and let GOD!! Why worry, when He has a plan for me, right? Well, that is easier said than done and there will be days where I will be a worry wart! However, I have decided to let a lot of things go and to simply be Sooo over some of them. 

Try it, because let me tell ya, whether the issue or dislike is serious or trivial, letting it go is so very FREEING!!!

1. Hollywood. 
And Their ridiculous political rants. Seriously, you're actors and actresses getting paid HUGE bucks to entertain, you're not heroes, not keeping our country safe. Go back to the studio and shush!! Matthew McConaughey was recently interviewed and asked if it's time for the Hollywood elite to accept the Presidency. His response was this:
“Well, they don’t have a choice now. He’s our President. And, it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an Inauguration and time as we’ve had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact. And be constructive with him over the next four years. So anyone, even those who may strongly disagree with his principles or things he’s said and done — and that’s another thing, we’ll see what he does compares to what he has said — no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be.”
Alright, Alright, Alright, Agree or Disagree, just get along and deal.

2. Dreary Weather. 
I think Mother Nature is mad at us for all the unrest in the world and is punishing us with grey skies. It's been the dreariest Winter, not the worst winter, not the coldest winter, not the snowiest winter....just so darn DREARY!! Enough already. I know you're up there sun! Doing a sun dance daily!! 

3. People Who Still Don't Get Blogging. 
Do you ever get asked why you Blog? I know I do, and my answer is always, "For the fun of it, it's my hobby, my online diary of sorts." Most people think that is great! Some will ask: How much time does it take? To which I reply "Oh, about 15 hours a week or more." Then, I get the look as if some people think I'm nuts, especially since I work too. It's my hobby people. I don't ask you why you spend 15 hours on social media?? Think about that one. 

4. Snacks that Taste like Cardboard. 
I'm a snacker, but I do not want the high calorie stuff (well I do but not gonna do it). Anyway, sometimes I get sick of fruit, veggies, hummus and nut butters and just want something of convenience. Enter a recent Special K purchase: Protein Bites. They are so bland, I had to throw them out. Ugh. I'll stick with a string cheese. 


5. Crappy Customer Service.
Ok check out girl at Sobeys, can you pull your eyes off Instagram for one second? And don't you even sigh cause I will sling so many coupons at you, your head will spin. You are not getting paid to file your 5 inch nails; show some respect. And look me in the eye when I say Thank you. I take the customer satisfaction surveys ya know. Oh and don't get me started on customer service over the phone. Held on the line for 90 minutes, finally rings to a person who can't speak English, only to have my call dropped, whaaaaat? Ugh.

6. People that go into or work in the medical field who are not personable or compassionate. 
I get the importance of the book smarts, an absolute must. However, I think the other must is a compassionate, nurturing heart. Rude, blunt, sarcastic, cold care just doesn't cut it for hurting patients. 

7. People who Don't Leave a Tip
Understandable if the service was horrific as I referenced how horrible customer service can be. However, even if the server was poor or mediocre, you should still give them some kind of tip. I was only a waitress for a split second but I know how the tips are the livelihood. It saddens me when I hear a conversation with someone laughing about not giving a tip. Shame on you! 

So True

And something to remember this fine Tuesday: 
Never Ruin a Good Day by Thinking About a Bad Yesterday! Let it Go!

In the monotony of daily life, chasing after happiness can seem like an endless, really big project. And sometimes, it is. But sometime...
