Tripping On Things You Can’t Control
You only have so much energy per day and you only get so many days ...
I took the weekend off the internet which is good to do if you haven't tried it yet.
It gives you a great chance to take back your attention from the endless river of noise.
This weekend in particular was good timing because a lot of people were tripping all over this banking mess.
And tripping over things you can’t control is not a great use of time or emotional energy.
You get all worked up and then you forget to breathe and you miss living in the world right here in front of you. The one filled with people you care about, books you want to read, and business you need to conduct.
You only have so much energy per day and you only get so many days so focusing on things you can’t control seems like a waste.
There will never be an end to the stuff you can trip over. Stupid things will continue and with the internet you can tune into as much of it as you need.

concise and wise...
Great advice. It’s so easy to be consumed by the news and the doom and gloom!
It’s almost spring. Enjoy the world!
