(4th of July)
Sometimes it's hard for me to let go of things that people say or do. I tend to let my frustration 'fester.'
(stealing uncle Brandon's food at The Cheesecake Factory.)
Then I have to remind myself of what is truly important and how blessed I am and it helps (some.) ha!
Because the truth is, petty things that bother me just don't matter in the grand scheme of things.
(wearing at least 5 pair of underwear at once...)
If something tragic happened to me, I would not care that someone upset me the day before. So, I just have to count my blessings and remind myself not to sweat the small stuff because it doesn't really matter!
I also need to get better at this forgiveness thing. When I am hurt, I find it so hard to forgive and I hold grudges. I know that it's wrong and I can't expect God to forgive me when I can't forgive others so I really need to work on that.
We all have our flaws and these are a few of mine. I am trying to work on them to be a better friend, mother, wife, daughter and all-around person. In spite of my flaws, I am blessed with some wonderful friends who put up with me and my 'stuff' as well as my wonderful hubby who is more than patient and understanding with me. He is the one person I can rely on to always be in my corner.
