Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

I go along day after day, week, year, following the same routine. And I worry. I agonize. I stress. I sweat the small stuff.

Every now and then some event comes along and stops me in the middle of my routine. It’s earth shaking, mind numbing, heart stopping. Yesterday it was the news of the death of Robin Williams. If you haven’t heard by now, your probably live off the grid, and are  blissfully ignorant of the details.

I haven’t seen all of his movies, I saw a few in the 90s. I enjoyed his animation voice overs and his wacky stand up routines. I very much liked the fact that he did good with his celebrity status, unlike so many, who just seek more fame more house more car. He was a good man.

His tragic demise hits close to home. I  won’t go into details, suffice it to say that his distress is not foreign to me. Death is awful. Death by one’s own hand is particularly so.

I’ve been on pause since yesterday, present but not quite. I ponder on how alone he must have felt. How his poor family is trying to grieve and function  in the spotlight of the media. I did the same when Michael Jackson died. I’ll most likely go through it again, the next time someone good dies young. Events like this make you think, about life and trying to find whatever joy you can. And if you suffer from mental issues, seek or accept help, as hard as that may be.

Today, I’m trying to let the small stuff go. It’s just not worth the stress.

Thanks for stopping by! 🌸

About Bella

I've reached my 40's with a few battle scars, but I'm still in one piece so I guess that's something to be thankful for. Married for a long time...well, what passes for long compared to many of my other friends. Almost 20 years. 3 kids: a teen and two tweens. Heaven help me! There's a lot about me to know but I always think that others won't find me interesting, isn't that sad? Writing is my passion. It's an outlet; it's a way to filter my world and the experiences I have. Blogging was a foreign concept to me when it first came out. But I GET IT now. It's therapeutic to unload. It's fun to read about the experiences of others. This is my way of meeting and greeting, overcoming the obstacles of time and distance. My hope is that you will stop and read my blog. That you will enjoy what I have to say, and we can have a chat. You're welcome anytime!
