My new philosophy of the day is......everyone basically has the capacity to be annoying so.......just smile and wave or something. I am tired in the extreme so I am not sure anything could happen that could get much of a rise out of me. Humans, ranging from toddlers to eighty somethings, all have that sin thing in common. Me too. I was driving home from Minnesota yesterday and at times my form of stress relief was making odd observations to change the current subject of the moment (lots of moments). I probably was making my mother nuts. Silence is a nice alternative at times if given the option to not respond. I need to work on that option a bit more as usually my odd observations are lost on the hearer. Sigh.
Everyone does annoying things. If you walk through any store you can overhear someone complaining about someone else having been annoying. It is constant. Sometimes though I do see and hear young couples and old calmly discussing things or enjoying their time out together. Observing people actually getting along is nice and sweet to behold. Observing funny teasing between the couples I visited on my trip was refreshing too.
So then.....how to deal with the crankiness which might happen.....forgive them. I sometimes want to say, "Forgive them already!!!" to others but that is me whining at them. So.....trying to remember that for myself. Sigh. I suppose I could be driven to say that to some random person in the supermarket, but that would be sort of obnoxious.....I think. Or maybe not......
So that is my deep little thought of the day. I guess I would call it a little study on bearing with one another in love. Smile!
