the trick

Notice there's a mushroom cloud photo with this post.  Not a mountain, to make a "mountain out of a mole hill" comparison. A mountain just sits there, bein' big.  But a mushroom cloud -- that's a big thing that does long-lasting, teeth-rattling destruction and irreparable harm.

The trick is, go for the mountain.  Don't always go for the big red button.  I know it's shiny, so tempting. Begging to be pressed.  You'll end up with a mushroom cloud and have to deal with a mess.  You can't unpress the button, or pack the annilation back into the bomb.  You can't unsay unkind words.

All this means:  try not to overreact to everything.  I'm talking to myself.  That's right, you doing the typing.  Sure, maybe the molehill is covered with ants and a few piles of dog doo, but you'll live.
