You know the sayings “don’t sweat the small stuff” and “don’t worry about the little things”. (Or something like that, whatever.)
Yeah well I’m awesome at both. I don’t just sweat the small stuff I bathe in it. (Ewwwww! I totally do not bathe in sweat by the way.)
I find something small to worry about, plant it in a terra cotta pot and nurture those small seedlings until they flourish into something really worth worrying about.
Today I had an appointment at 10am. I was so nervous that I wouldn’t find a car park that I felt like throwing up. I was worried about the coffee being of poor quality and that I wouldn’t have the right change for the meter.
I got a park right out the front. Right out the front!!! I had the right change. And the coffee? Well 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.
So it turns out that I worried about things that I didn’t need to worry about.
That worries me.
My 5 year old son got his first school report recently. It said that he sometimes over reacts and cries instead of asking the teacher for help.
I wonder where gets that from.
I asked him today if he ever gets worried about little things.
He said yes. “Are you talking about Lego men because they can easily fall out of your pocket?”
So I should try not to worry about the little things… or get some pockets with zips.
