Its monday morning and we got our first snowfall of the year here in MN. Joyous, happy times:D Right?? Right??? Come on people, its beautiful outside, snow dusting the roads, car’s driving way too slow, some stopped traffic, a few accidents, its the first day of our long and fun winter….
And its Monday!!!!! LOL Ok, I know most people don’t like the snow or mondays, but they happen all the time.
This weekend I was doing my normal people watching (NO, Its not staling, LOL), I like to see how people react to situations that come up. For me, when something happens, good or bad, celebrate, then move on. What I see most people do is drag on the event, stress and worry over it, make it so much bigger than it really is. Why??
At the casino, btw that is one fun place to people watch, way better than walmart….. But at the casino, there are 1000′s of games, sometimes one is out of order, people stop, read the out of order sign, ponder what to do and then grab the nearest employee and see if they can turn the machine on.. Really, with 1000′s of other working machines, they spend time on one that is out of order. Or people that touch the machines or talk to them???? Really, am I to think that this person can talk to a machine and it will listen???Or driving in traffic is fun too, why would someone really truly get mad sitting in traffic?? Really, think about it, what good can come out of you getting mad that traffic has stopped? Is you getting upset at someone next to you gonna really change who that person is? Is traffic magically going to movenow because you are pissed off?
So, this week, lets not waste our precious time on getting upset, overreacting, stressing or worrying about things that we can control or change. Lets instead focus our energies on what we can control and change to make ourselves better.
