That’s not my battle to fight

I am a huge believer in helping those who truly want to help themselves. Sometimes I see folks flail around in their struggles, become consumed with it, then lose sight of their purpose. Their happiness goes out the window, and it’s all downhill from there.

Awhile back I spoke with a girl who had a horrible day. It was one of those days, she couldn’t catch a break, a bunch of things compacted she felt overwhelmed, she was just beyond frustrated and done.

Gosh what I’d give to have the knowledge I have today, oh about 10-15 years ago. I laugh at I type this only because we’ve all been there. Right??


The point of sharing this is because those crappy days are what help toughen us up. They add a little layer of thickness to our skin and we {hopefully} gain a life lesson out of them. As much as they suck, they provide an opportunity to build character, learn about ourselves and as my dad always says they round our corners.

We grow by how we choose to deal with a crappy day or situation. With an honest, critical eye. Not to beat ourselves up over it, but to see things for what they really are.

If you continue to view bad times as a lesson, adjust your reactions and learn from them I promise with time, it will get easier. Little by little you will become the person you want to be. You will be more confident and less afraid of confrontation because you took the time to truly figure out how to make the right decisions. You become a chess player in life, and that my friends is the key.

Please don’t take this post the wrong way. I am far from perfect. Hahaha. I still lose my shit, (especially with lazy people), but it happens less often and I have learned to choose my battles. I can’t even tell you how often I think to myself ‘that’s not my battle to fight‘ and let whatever it is go.

All. the. freaking. time.

  1. Yes, so hard to remember in the moment but as I age, I am getting better at this. A great reminder!
