“La la la, Whatever”

I heard a song today that said, “La la la, whatever” as part of the repeating lyrics. I’ve already had to repeat that to myself several times today. It’s actually a much needed motto to have when things are frankly, out of your control. We shouldn’t let petty things annoy us so easily.

I’m not advocating that we live life in a no-caring state of mind, but when we let trivial things ruin our day and cause us anger, then we are only hurting our own selves. Fretting is never going to solve anything, but it can make it a ton worse. I’m sure you probably know that from experience, just as much as I.

So try it out today, someone cuts you off in traffic, blow the horn, flash your lights, tailgate them, and scream!? Nope, say “la la la, whatever”!
You get the idea!

Go have a beautiful relaxing day!

    I do enjoy reading, ‘what ever’ you post (~_~)

  4. Oh ooh!! life reminds us of good every time we cross a line, in the simplest of ways.
    Just after the day i read your post(and forgot it by night), i was going on my friend’s bike in a small town which usually doesn’t happen to be a heavy traffic place. But that day, i do not know why, there was a mild traffic there on the highway on the outskirt of our town. And we were moving slowly in this traffic when i heard someone sounding horn repeatedly, i turned back to see a ‘Range Rover’ car and the first thing i mumbled was “f**** your Range Rover”(though i never really abuse strangers, i was in a bad mood then..just perfect for what i was going to realize.. πŸ˜‰ ). bcoz in our town, we only see few low class cars not these high end vehicles and the thing that a costly car is trying to piss us off in traffic annoyed me. But as i said, life reminds us of our acts at every chance. And immediately i remebered your post, i read the day before. I said to myself, “yeah, whatever!” and i was surprised, i felt calm suddenly. Oh..!! πŸ˜‰ applied philosophy! thank you.!

  5. That is an Awesome real life story of you putting that to practice!! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for sharing that with me, you just made my day!
