Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

Have you been told not to sweat the small stuff? I am sure you have. I have, too. I am sure that almost all grown-ups have been told, at some point of our lives, that letting small, and insignificant annoyances disturb our peace of mind is just not worth it.

If it is not a life or death situation, do not bother and stress over it. Although small annoyances can be minuscule in actuality; however, at the moment of occurrence, they can be magnified tenfold by our off-balanced perspective, which, in turn, renders them an aura of life and death kind of importance that they did not possess to begin with. Change the way we look at things, the things that we look at change.

Change happens fast; after all, staying stagnant is just not a way of life in this universe. That being said, it is always easier said than done when it comes to us giving suggestion to others, instructing them what to do and not to do. When it is us, who are at the receiving end of criticism or tip and how-to, moving a single step in a new direction can be as heavily difficult as moving a mountain that is not high nor grandiose.
