Well That Was Stupid

26Mar14

It is amazing the things it takes for us to realize how stupid the small stuff really is. In the grand scheme of life, the minor annoyances/failures/road bumps don’t mean squat. And how quickly we forget about that. How quickly we are to immerse ourselves in the negative and what we don’t have instead of remembering and embracing the good. We are very lucky people – everyday we wake up to a brand new day full of life’s new excitements. Everyday we get the chance to start over and make ourselves better regardless of what happened in the past. There are people to wake up to, to laugh with, to grab you when you are falling.

I am guilty of that more than most. I woke up in a foul mood after a fight and it was going to ruin my entire day. But the morning had different plans for me. (Thanks to the millionth snow storm) I hit black ice, spun out of control and hit a ramp barrier. Thankfully, I was the only one involved and the only thing damaged was the car and my ego. For a second, I thought it was all over. That this very flash of my life and the anger I felt were the last things I would remember. I realized I was being a fool. Harboring on things that didn’t need to exist and failing to appreciate everything I had would have ruined what could have been my last moment. Is that really what you want to see when your life flashes before your eyes?

This may be minor to some, but it was a wake up call for me. Life is too short to be resentful about things no longer in my control. Life is too short to not appreciate every little thing about the people I care about – the good and the bad. Life is too short to make mountains out of molehills. Life is just too short.
