"Don't sweat the small stuff" was a common snippet, and it was also the one that never quite sat right with me. If anything, the small stuff was the stuff I could wrap my little hands around. It was the stuff I could see from end to end. It was the stuff I could control.
I eventually learned to disobey my elders. Now that I'm all grown up, I'm going to look for the guy at the Metro station and let him know that the small stuff is really where it's at. I may yet share this quote with him:
"Faith in small things has repercussions that ripple all the way out. In a huge dark room a little match can light up the place."Your turn: Do you sweat the small stuff? How?

One more thing: I sometimes include links to the authors of the quotes I share here. This one is particularly inspirational, and I hope you follow it home.
