Conflict happens. But do we really have to engage with it? Do we need to read about it, talk about it, worry over it? No, we don’t.
Joyful Springers put their back to the fray. They may be surrounded by contention, but they remain serenely oblivious to its specifics.
Is it possible you get involved in more conflict than is absolutely necessary? Unless some sort of clash is right in your face, as in someone has a problem directly with you that needs to be resolved, you and everyone around you will benefit if you turn away from as many fracases as you can.
[Pump, Jeter, and Carlie are back. Great buddies, Jeter and Carlie, love to play, but it looks like Pump isn't in the mood for their antics. She's just going to ignore the youngsters and take a nice nap. ]
