“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”- Robert Frost
One thing that frustrates my husband is when I order food from any fast food drive-thru. He does not understand how something so simple can be so complicated. He hates that it normally takes 5 to 10 minutes for me to order. He hates that I always have some type of stipulation like “double fries no slaw,” or “no cheese and dressing on the side”. It gets dicey when I change my order at the last minute. These sudden changes add another 10 minutes to the already 10 minutes that we have been waiting in line.
Truthfully, I am obsessed with making the right and best decision. However, I think I might be overthinking, over reasoning, and overanalyzing the joy and excitement out of life. I am learning that sometimes, you have to shrug it off and get over it. This quote helps me to realize that life won’t wait for you to make the best or right decision; life continues regardless.
Also, if you know that life keeps moving, it’s important to filter out what’s important and what isn’t. Pettiness, negative opinions, toxic judgments, unnecessary arguments are not important. Hurry up, and get a new perspective, because life will keep moving. At times, life can be a whole lot of nothing or a whole lot of something. Regardless, as Frost says, it goes on.
Practice saying these words:
“I’m letting it go.”
“I’ll leave it for tomorrow.”
“I don’t care.”
“I’m walking away.”
“So what, I don’t try to understand.”
“It’s not that serious.”
