Challenge #8: Pick your battles
Life's too short and time is too precious to beat ourselves and our spouses up about stupid meaningless crap, or that one stupid thing they said.There are tons of things that go on that don't need my time or energy, nor are they worthy of a battle.
A good tip is to try not to react immediately. Take a minute or five and then decide. And if it's still bothering you, address in matter of factly. Leave the emotion out. Or do what I do and make a joke about it. Sometimes that goes over well and can make both of you lighten up.
So we're a week into the challenge! How's it going?
