Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.
— Swedish Proverb
So you didn’t get the guy, the spot in the lead play, or your order of “special” nachos right, now what? Go and cry in your room? Complain to your parents and friends about how unfair it is that he/she/it is worse than you and that you are better than them? No. You move on with your life because everything happens for a reason.
The small stuff is what gets us though, it seems like one small thing goes wrong, then a domino effect occurs and all of a sudden we have a big pile of problems; it’s hard to get out of our smalls stuff rut. The only way to get over our problems is with a new attitude. We have so many big problems that effect our world today—poverty, depression, Bill O’reily—we can rise above not getting everything we want. If we go through life carrying all our baggage and issues with us, all we will accomplish is problems not solutions nor happiness. Life doesn’t perspire, so don’t sweat the small stuff
