Don’t worry, be happy

Do you ever get so stressed you lose sight of what’s important?
Most of the day, I worry about things that don’t matter. If you do the same, ask yourself these questions: Is this worth it? Is this going to matter in a year, or even in a week?
If the answer is no, don’t waste your time worrying about it. 
We shouldn’t waste our time being mad at each other, either. If something bothers you and you worry about it for over 24 hours, then you’re becoming bitter.
We shouldn’t waste time being less happy than we could be. We should always try to live our best lives.
This is something I struggle with; being angry and stubborn.
If something doesn’t go my way, I have a lot of trouble dealing with it. I can never just go with the flow because I like to have things planned out, but it’s really not that complicated. This is something I can never get through my head.
I need to just live life with a smile on my face instead of worrying about every detail of every second of the day.
I have so many great things and people in my life that I don’t even realize. I lose sight of it all as soon as I’m in a bad mood.
I have my family, boyfriend, friends, school, my job, etcetera. I have a lot of good things going my way. I just want to be able to appreciate it before any of it is gone.  
I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who supports and encourages me. 
I know I’m a hard person to deal with at times, but it means a lot to have genuine people, like you all, care about me.
You all keep me going and I couldn’t appreciate you more. Hopefully I can spend more time on what’s important and less time on other things.  
I promise I’m not some sappy, sad, angry person all the time. I just have trouble being positive when I feel down.
But, I’m tired of wasting my time stressing about things, people and situations that aren’t helping me grow as a person.
I hope I can start being a more positive person and see the glass as half full, not empty.
