Who needs it anyway?
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.
