One of the most popular games for the past couple of years has been Angry Birds. I think we have a lot of angry birds running around our lives.
Is it okay to get mad? Sure! But I wonder why certain people get so angry about simple mistakes? We all make them, don’t we?
My advice for today’s installment of “Live a Little,” a fun feature started last week by Katja of Skimbaco Lifestyle is let it slide.
That’s right. Try letting the little mistakes go, don’t burst an artery. You can actually enjoy a little laughter over the little mistakes that happen throughout your day.
A perfect example happened for me this past weekend. Check out the little cake I bought for a small family celebration to honor St. Patrick’s Day.
Seems innocent enough. And it is. But I joked yesterday on Facebook that the cake decorator might have had a bottle of Jameson stashed behind the cake case because I asked for “Luck of the Irish” in green icing. Ha! Okay.
I could have stomped my heels, put on my angry face and demanded the cake be redone. Sure I could have. My blood pressure would have jumped. I would have caused the clearly busy cake decorators more stress. But guess what? I didn’t order the cake in advance, I simply picked one from the case. It was $10. No harm done. When they asked if it looked okay, I smiled and said, “Sure.”
I let it slide!
We laughed about it. We cut the cake and it was YUMMY.
Live a little. Let it slide!
Any examples of how you’ve let it slide or lived a little recently?
