March 9th is National Get Over It Day. Originally conceived by a guy attempting to get over his girlfriend, he quickly realized how it can apply to so much more. There is so much in life that is beyond our control, yet it is going to happen anyway. And as bad as we think life may get, always remember one thing…It Could Always Be Worse!
So you have a choice. You can complain, wallow in self-pity, be a poster child for gloom and doom, OR you can make the decision to do something about it and simply Get Over It!
In case you need some inspiration of something to get over today, here are a few things we have noticed both around our community and elsewhere that have gotten their fair share of griping lately. Why not, at least just for today, Get Over it?!
– Traffic problems in and around Charleston.
– The extension of 526.
– Alcohol ban on the beaches.
– Hotel growth on the peninsula.
– The ever increasing cost of living in Charleston.
– Tourist season.
– Daily population migration into Charleston.
– The new presence of cranes in the Holy City.
– Folly Gras 2017.
Many people have said it many different ways. The bottom line is nobody is going to be happy all the time. The key is to make the most of what you have while you are lucky enough to have it. Today we are reminded of this.
