Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

Life is active and guess what… you ain’t the only one in it.

This world is full of people and each person here has their own personality, which means that they all have their own unique style, ideas and ways of doing things.

I can guarantee that at some point, and more than likely at several points, someone will do something, or an event will happen that you will not like.

Deal with it. It’s gonna happen!

Too many times we allow our feathers to get riled up over things that simply don’t matter.

Now before you start saying “hey, it matters to me”, think about it. Does it really matter?

I mean is that incident or words spoken truly going to hold you back or hurt you in some way.

At times we let our egos and our desire to be right get in the way of what we ultimately want to accomplish.

Conflict, no matter what the size, takes energy to deal with. It uses up precious mental, emotional and physical energy.

Think this doesn’t apply to you? Think again.

I challenge you to simply look at your Facebook news feed. I can almost certainly guarantee that at least one of your friends have posted how their day started off on the wrong foot and has steadily gone down hill, and when or if you investigate it, you will find that the catalyst for their downward spiral was something trivial.

We subscribe too many times to the drama and allow that to take up our valuable resources.

So the line at the bank was long, so what. So someone said something that you didn’t like, Big deal. So you got cut off by a rude driver, get over it.

Life is going to bring you a lot of stuff to deal with. If you spend all you energy fighting the little things you won’t have the resources necessary to battle the big things.

DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! You’ll have more time and energy to LIVE LIFE!
