Who needs it anyway?
Apparently we all love it. We read about it in the gossip magazines, which we all know is never true. 
We thrive on those reality shows like The Bachelor, okay maybe not ALL of us, but definitely the majority of us, myself included:) 

But then of course when it's happening in our own lives we despise it!

... or do we? Have you ever thought that maybe we create the drama in our lives?
Yes, we absolutely do. We can't control others, but we can ALWAYS control how we react to others.
Nobody's exempt from dealing with life's difficulties. We all have drama at some point in our lives.  With family members, friends, spouses, children. It's inevitable and it SUCKS, excuse my word choice, but it just does. As frustrating as it can be, we have to remember that it's all part of Gods plan. We're here to be tested. Which means, God wants us to learn how to deal with these things in a positive manner. I love the Carrie Underwoods song, "So Small".

I know it's hard on a rainy day, you wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
But don't run out on your faith
Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever, is in your hands
And when you figure out, love is all that matters after all
sure makes everything else seem so small

It's so easy to get lost inside
a problem that seems so big at the time
It's like a river thats so wide
It swallows you whole
While you're sitting around thinking bout what you can't change
and worrying about all the wrong things
Time's flyin by
movin so fast
better make it count cause you can't get it back

It's such an inspirational song and reminds me that sometimes the things that I'm worried most about are so insignificant. It's easy to fall into a pity me party, but the best way to deal with those kinds of situations is to focus on solutions. Solutions meaning what YOU can do to fix it. Easier said than done, but it's something I'm working on.

Cheers to less drama and more meaningful time spent with the people that matter most.

Sometimes I think we play up the drama when it would have just died down on its own. :(

I love that song! I also am loving the Bachelor too! The drama...not so much. I feel like society and TV make us feel like we should have more drama in our lives. Like it's the "norm"...when it's really not! It's hard not to get wrapped up in it sometimes though. That's a good reminder:-)

Drama and I do not mix well. I seriously can not handle it and will meet it face on to stop it. I hope things get better.

I have a NO DRAMA zone surrounding me...But, I do love TMZ. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Cheers to that. I sometimes get caught up thinking that what I can change is simply removing myself from a situation, but that's the easy way out. Finding a solution within the problem is harder, and I have a feeling more rewarding. Time will tell. :) Thanks for the words from the song!

Oh how I miss you Crystal. Positive support makes ALL the difference in my book. I've had both and sadly there are way more negatives than positives out there. I'd take one positive person versus one million indifferent, negative, whatever people any day. We need more people to build us up, not tear us down. Drama is for sad people.

AMEN to that! Although I still can't help getting my smut on at the checkout line and flipping through the mags! lol

I try so hard to be drama free but sometimes it just wiggles it's way in doesn't it. This song is such a great reminder to look at the big picture I also like the song by Kenny Chesney "don't blink" It always humbles me
