It has been one of those days – well, the whole week. Do you ever feel so frustrated, like – no matter how hard you try – you are still left holding the short end of the stinky brown stick?
Well, it has been that kind of week for me. But you know what I did? I dropped the stick. I emotionally dropped the stick. For the remainder of this day, I declare I will no longer accept responsibility for anything that is outside of my direct control.
Hey, I am on a grief journey, and I know a thing or two about “out of control”. So I am not going to feel like a failure because something didn’t work out. I am not going to let anyone belittle or demean me because they failed to plan and I couldn’t work enough magic to make it perfect.
I am not responsible for the actions of others or their outcomes.
Nope. Not today.
I dropped the stinky brown stick.
Declare your emotional independence! Next time someone leaves you holding the short end of the stinky brown stick – DROP IT!!
