I’m glad to hear that, and as you know… me too…
I don’t like to stress out over trivial things… I do it anyways, but I can usually handle it.
My parents hate it, though, when I’m not visibly stressed by a situation, and I come off as ignorant and dismissive to them because they can’t see my frustration. They don’t know that I’m breaking down from stress until they see I’m starting to cry. Just sniffling quietly.
“Let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.” goes hand in hand for that, too. To me.
“Expect the worst, hope for the best.” Disappointment can’t crush you as badly that way, and it can’t hurt too much to twist your fingers and hope that it goes your way.
Because life can and will get hard. It always will keep you busy with obstacles until the end of your lifetime, and that’s just how it is. It’s up to you to keep beaming with a wonderful smile and just do your best. Listen to the song “Jump Rope” by Blue October. I love it.
Stay positive. Everyone has difficulties to deal with, and because of that, keep it in mind that if somebody snaps at you, don’t always take it personally. They might be having a terrible day. :C That’s something my mom taught me. You never know… You don’t know their life, so treat them with kindness, regardless. ( Not that it pardons them to treat you however they like. )
Another song, “If You’re Going Through Hell” by Rodney Atkins for some inspiration. Stay strong!
You can do it!
I just jumped around a lot. But that’s my philosophy. I don’t know how much you agree with it all, but that’s my interpretation. I’m glad that you live life along the guidelines of “Expect the worst, hope for the best.” It makes me happy when I have friends that approach me, telling me that they were having a bad day, happened to glance at my blog, and suddenly the top quote made sense to them, and that they like it.
Makes me so happy…!
