One of my favourite questions to ask myself is, “Am I minding too much?” It’s basically about how we can get just a bit too bothered by very small stuff, often out of habit. Do you mind too much about small things? Once I start to think about this, I realise that there are quite a few things about which I mind a bit too much: cars blocking the Keep Clear part of a road junction near my house, and other people’s inconsiderateness in general were the main ones (I could go on). This is totally unproductive and a bit toxic: sometimes, I start to expect things to annoy me, and am almost waiting for them to happen to prove that yes, they are irritating. Definitely a case of minding too much.
At this point, I need to ask myself whether something matters all that much, in the big scheme of things; naturally, it helps to keep perspective and not get so bothered by small stuff. Of course, some things still bother me, but I try to keep it to things that really matter to me – as it’s not about losing passion and drive for things, just about not getting so worked up over things that were actually just old habits that no longer do anything useful.
