Sometimes we have drama in our lives...don't we all?  I came across the 7 rules of life and I want to share them with you:

  1. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
  2. What others think of you is NONE of your business.
  3. Time heals almost everything...so give it time.
  4. Don't compare your life to others and don't judge them.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  5. Stop thinking to much, it's alright not to know the answers.  They will come to you when you least expect it.
  6. No one is in charge of your happiness...except YOU.
  7. Smile...You don't own all the problems in the world.

I saw these and thought wow...we can allow ourselves to live a pretty messy life....it sucks, but when you bless and embrace these things above...it seems to get simpler.

I definitely have a problem with # 5... I always...always overthink things and I pick it to death on how to improve, make better, and correct any issues.  While that is great on one hand...it can always get messy on the side.  Like I want perfection...but it doesn't exist...I want order...but sometimes that doesn't happen because of events and schedules.  It can drive me crazy if I allow it too.

So when I saw this...it made me think...wow...sometimes it is ok that we are a mess!  LOL  We just need to learn to embrace it and own it!
