We might think we are controlling the Universe of what happens in our life, but sometimes we work against our own best interests.
"Nay, I don't wanna go to that party. Why? So I can make the host happy?! Who cares?!"
"I really used to like it when Betty Lou would always win at Checkers. But you know what? She's really bugging me now with that winning streak of hers! How dare she parade her Checkers genius to the world?!"
Let it go, peeps. Just be happy for people doing their thing. And be part of their joy...just as much as you want others to be part of your own joy.
Making people happy...even with feeding their ego just a little bit...brings a lot more Light into the world...especially during the Holidays.
As opposed to goin' all Grinch and Scrooge on the people who love you the most.
