Don't Sweat The Small Stuff

We've all heard terms like "no use crying over spilled milk" or "don't sweat the small stuff" (and it's all small stuff). Those common sayings have very profound wisdom. If your time is filled by reaction rather than focused action you're surely not at peace. What I mean by that is you can live a life reacting to all the circumstances and actions of the people around you wanting your time and attention, asking for money, answering the phone, cleaning up after others, road rage, apologizing for others behaviors, apologizing for your own behavior, and so on.

On the other hand, you can let many of those things roll right by without any worry or negative energy being given to them, while you fill your life with purpose and focus. Put your eye on the prize and move that direction. For me my top priorities are religion and family those two things bring the most joy into my life and when I am focused on those two things I feel the best. I have other goals that are lower on the priorities list that also bring happiness or even joy but if I get to focused on those or on pleasing others I start losing the peace and power that comes from focusing on the things that are most important to me.

For example, I enjoy writing and playing music. I've created a YouTube channel where I post my music and interact with my listeners through social media. It is incredibly fun for me however, at times I've become so obsessed with writing a song that I forget about the other things higher on my priorities list. I could spend hours commenting on social media and videos, chatting with my listeners and other musicians and as long as I stay grounded while doing so it's no big deal but if that becomes my priority, because it's fun and available, I will lose the peace, strength and joy that I really want.

He Sees You Now

“Fear is a poor chisel with which to carve out tomorrow”.
“Life itself is a privilege, but to live life to its fullest—well that is a choice.” Anne Frank

Act With Courage

Fear is full of negative emotion, usually inflamed and given more power than it aught to have. Fear is very often shame based. It tells the individual "you are insufficient". It brings feelings of dissatisfaction and thoughts of failure before the trial is even over.

The opposite of fear is faith, faith says even though you don't know or see the whole picture right now, trust all will turn out well in the end, trust in yourself, trust in others, trust in God. Faith is full of hope and positive emotion. Faith requires courage and action.

I've found in my own life that I often don't see the whole picture and if it's a difficult situation I'm faced with, I tend to fill in the blank with fear, then when I face the situation, without exception, the fear was inflamed and far from reality. In fact I come out better than before. Only after experiencing this type of cycle many times have I learned to deflate the fear early. To push it aside and move forward.
