Annoyed no more

Life is too precious to spend it being annoyed. The sooner you move past being annoyed, the better each moment will be.

If you find something annoying and it’s something you can change, then quickly take the necessary steps to make it better. Redirect the negative energy of your annoyance into making a useful and positive contribution to life.

When something annoys you that you cannot do anything about, let yourself rise above it. There’s no point in wasting your time and energy being concerned with it.

You can choose to be annoyed by something, and you can just as easily choose not to let it get to you. Annoyance is nothing more than a reaction, one that is under your complete control.

When you become annoyed, it distracts you and can cast everything in a negative light. Once your annoyance has gotten your attention, there is no good reason for it to continue.

One way or another, quickly move whatever annoys you. Be free to focus on those good and valuable things that truly matter.
