Maybe you have come across the statement: don’t sweat the small stuff. Is that totally true? Should small things be ignored or neglected? Or is it important to take care of the small things?
Let’s see a few areas where it would not be wise to ignored or neglect the small things:
Have you ever had a small pebble in your shoe? Have you ever tried ignoring that?
What would happen if you ignored or neglected a cavity? It would not be wise to do that. If a cavity would be ignored it could lead to much trouble like a root canal ora loss of a tooth. Even better is the small thing of brushing one’s teeth to avoid tooth damage altogether.
What would happen if you ignored or neglected a mosquito? If you went to bed without dealing with it, you might not be able to get a good night’s sleep.
Imagine the disaster that could result if you got some sand in your eyes when you were driving your automobile? Better to safely stop the car and remove the sand from the eyes.
These are just a few examples ofwhere the small things should not and cannot be ignored or neglected.
There are many small things in life that should be given proper attention:
