"Make the best out of life. Don't sweat the small stuff and don't ponder the petty things. Just forget about it and move on with a smile."
This inspirational quote has really made me think about stupid little things that I get mad or irritated about, whether they are at work, home, or when I am hanging out with my friends.
I also used this to (so far) get through school. When I have a problem with another student or professor, or even with my financial aid going through, I think of this quote and remember that it is just a little problem and it will be solved eventually and I will be able to move on with a smile.
Smiling is a big part of my life because it makes everyone, including myself, feel better. I am an optimistic person, and smiling just makes that even better.
Another phrase in this quote is "don't ponder the petty things." I think it has a great deal of meaning in my life, because I am surrounded by a family that loves to analyze and ponder things to no end. I have to remind myself not to get into this habit, because then problems turn into completely different problems and the wrong people could be involved because a problem was turned over and over until a meaning was found that was acceptable. This shouldn't happen in real life, and I think that this quote has helped me cope with this "problem" that exists with my family.
