Onto Day 8 of Blog Every Day in May. Today I'll be dishing out some advice. I'm probably not the best person for this as I never follow my own advice, but here goes. Something I like to think when things get rough...
Don't sweat the small stuff.
No really, I know it's tough but sometimes you have to push those things out of your brain. I am terribly for hooking onto an idea/thought and I will obsess over it until it's done. If I think I may have left the straighteners on then I will worry about it until I'm home (it's the same with locking the front door). It goes from the small things to things about work... Even if I write the thought in my diary for the next day, I will still obsess about it until I get to school. I'm basically a nightmare once I have something in my head! I will make my boyfriend listen while I go over and over something out loud.
I remember my dad once saying to tell that thought to go away for a little while, and not to think about it. Say to that thought "I'm not going to think about you for 20 minutes, then I'll come back to you". Personally I can't do that as my obsessive mind will not let it happen, however I think that's very good advice to follow.
