Brush it off

Let’s bypass the bitching, the complaining, the kvetching, the sourpuss attitudes. All of which I am guilty of not just in the past days, weeks, or months, but even the past hour.

I’m not saying that I don’t have legitimate grounds for complaint, nor am I saying that everything is rosy and perfect, even just in the moment.

But I’ve started to learn that there’s really nothing that can be done about 98% of the things I would like to complain about so it’s not really worth expending the energy TO complain about them.

There are things that it’s worth fighting, fighting for, trying to change. Then there’s everything else. If I just conserve my energy for things that make me happy, or the things I might actually be able to change, then maybe I’ll be more effective overall in everything that I do.

This is all a poorly organized way to say I’m going to put my nose to the grindstone and try to just slough off the things that bug me on a day to day basis.
