Sometimes we as humans get caught up in trivia. We worry about the little things that, in the long run, just don’t really matter. I have been asked before about how my marriage has lasted so long (45 years and counting!) and how we get along so well. One of the big reasons is we try to avoid the trap of worrying about the little stuff. We usually just say, hey, let’s worry about sh_ _, uh, stuff that really matters. Then we laugh it off and it goes away. I came across a great quote from Cher’s mother awhile back (yeah, that Cher! 😊). She said, “If it doesn’t matter in 5 years, it doesn’t matter”. So, next time you find yourself anxious or worried about something, think down the line a bit. In 5 years, will it really matter?
