Quote of the month – October
If it won’t matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset or angry about it.
Interesting concept, right? I read this quote and it resonated with me because it’s so true. I started writing a blog post about this, about how life is busy and people are stressed out, and how we worry about every little thing, but then I deleted it because there is no need to tell you things you already know.
Read this quote. Then read it again. Let it sink in.
Then think about how you can apply it to your life and what has been stressing you out. If it won’t matter in five years, then don’t waste any more time stressing about it.
Our lives change every minute of every day. In an instant, everything we know can change. There are certainly some things that are worth giving a lot of thought to as we know they will affect the rest of our lives.
However, if something is stressing you out and you know that it won’t matter years from now, stop giving it your energy. Redirect your thoughts in a new, more positive direction.
