Anti-aggravation Week #4: Don’t sweat it

Today's a good day to get some perspective. A lot of things that aggravate us only do so because we have the luxury of not wrestling with bigger issues.

Today be thankful for everything you have: being alive, friends and family, health, a roof over your head, something to eat, clean water to drink, indoor plumbing, heating, air conditioning, clothes, shoes, a job, freedoms.

Many many people have it worse. That bad driver in front of you or annoying co-workers or technical difficulties really aren't that important. Yeah, okay, irritating, but important? No, not really.

Slow yourself down enough to look around and see the good things to be thankful for.

And just let the rest of that dumb stuff go; aggravation is a bad investment of your time and energy anyhow. Go make a pie instead – it's more fun and it sure does leave a better taste in your mouth!
