Deep Breath

Inhale. Hold it. Hold it. Now release. Inhale. Deeper. Hold it. Blow it out.

In order to get through this week, I had to remind myself to breathe deep and let it go. Some people just like to make everything a bigger problem than it needs to be. It's disturbing to an extent. There are moments when you can almost feel their glee in doing this. To me, it's rather telling of how small their lives must be. Seriously. Who has time to blow everything out of proportion? I don't. I've got other things to do. Like floss or rearrange my sock drawer. So it is a colossal displeasure dealing with those personalities who haven't quite gotten that making a mountain out of a mole hill is just asinine. How they can take something so fantastically simple and twist it into a great, big, fat, irritating mess is mind-boggling. Sometimes it's a family member, a co-worker or a friend over-reacting. Then again, sometimes it's just the buffoon in front of you holding up the line. There's nothing you can do about it. Schooling them on the fact they are acting like a twat isn't going to help matters. Suggesting that they shut their traps and engage their brains won't speed things up. No. All you can do is take a deep breath, hold it, and blow it off.

Sometimes you have to do that so often it feels like you're hyperventilating, though.

Enjoy the hilarious wisdom of this clip.
