The Practice of Submission - Day 28
Have you ever known someone who would spend weeks, months, even years fuming about some little thing that did not go their way? They get stressed out just thinking about it or when something reminds them of it. In the end, whatever they are consumed with controls them. I received a traffic ticket for an accident that happened on Portland Ave. and 164th. You know it wasn’t my fault! The police officer gave both of us a ticket because he didn’t want to talk about it. I got ripped off! What? The point is that every time I went on those roads, I thought about it, then I would get angry about it, and then I would stress out over it! EVERY TIME! Isn’t that stupid? Just a traffic ticket! It wasn’t life or death! Submission says, accept what I did wrong (did I not mention I got into the turning lane early?), learn from it, and…sing it with me, “Let it Go! Let it Go! (come on, you know the song!)
Today: When we get angry, we often get stupid. It’s a combo! Stupid confuses what’s not important for what’s important. Think about it today and Let it Go!
