It's easy to let little things cloud one's perception of the bigger picture sometimes. Trivial things seem to pop up or intercept what your focus should really be on. I try to weigh the importance of things that I get caught up in against what is of constant importance in my life. It becomes necessary to let a lot of those trivial little things fall by the wayside. Negative people or comments, the nagging feeling of how people perceive you at times. If you let it, it will eat you alive, and I want more from my life than that. I've come to have the support that I need. I have a connection to someone that I find fantastic in so many ways so much of the time. And I've learned the importance of family. I'm really lucky, underneath.
