The Small Stuff

We've heard it all before, but I just wanted to say it again...

Here are a few sound bites on overcoming the nagging impossibilities in your life and finding a way to ignore the pet peeves that get under your skin, and just keep on keeping on:

  • No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
  • Choose your battles. Don't sweat the small stuff.
  • When you know that you're capable of dealing with whatever comes, you have the only security the world has to offer.
  • Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.
  • Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
  • Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Let tomorrow take care of itself.
  • Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
  • Don't cast your pearls before swine. Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.
  • The Enemy only starts shooting once you go over the top.
  • Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember, the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you.
  • We will either find a way, or make one.
  • The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
  • It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it. 
  • Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.
  • If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much.
  • Truly great folks never stoop
    To answer petty things;
    The unkind word, the bitter cut
    That rankles deep and stings.
    They are too big to notice them,
    They simply pass them by,
    And even with a smile sometimes
    Or twinkle in the eye.
    For they have found that after all
    ‘Twas better in the end
    To meet it with a smile, and then,
    Just let it pass, my friend.
