When I was young sometimes we would go crying to our mother and her favorite statement when she believed we were making too much of a situation ‘your making a mountain out of a mole hill”. Ninety-nine percent of the time she was right.
Sometimes even now I have to be careful not to be doing that exact same thing. I find myself doing it when I have had tests waiting for the results. My mind likes to take trips on all sort of outcomes.
Just recently I was scheduled for cortisone shots in my back. While waiting for that appointment I went through a myriad of situations on whether or not it would be painful. Reality proved different, I barely felt a thing. So, I was making a mountain out of a mole hill.
As I move forward I am going to try to limit those mountain making in my mind from such small things like mole hills.
