Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened. ~Dr. Seuss
This quote was shared by Rochelle Jhonson on Twitter. She has shared several great quotes. Just want to give her a hat tip for it.
Wow, a very simple quote, but so meaningful in many ways. It could relate to many things. Relationships, jobs, careers, events, lives, business, failures. Anything.
When something ends, you shouldn’t cry, or think of the ending as bad or even what happened as bad or sad. Yes, it may be sad for a moment, especially if we lost someone or something we truly loved.Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. ~Dr. Seuss Click To Tweet
But what Dr. Seuss says here, to me, is that we shouldn’t cry, but instead smile. Remember the experience and the fact that it happened. Whether it was a good or bad experience, we can take something away from that experience.
The joy we shared, the love we felt, the excitement we held in our hearts or minds for the time we had it. A lesson learned, knowing that we won’t do the same thing again. A knowledge or skill acquired that will propel us to greater good.
It reminds me of the philosophy and a saying we say in my martial art that I study:
Shiken haramitsu daikoumyo
The translation shared with me by the Grandmaster and my Sensei was:
“In every experience in life, there is the opportunity to gain total enlightenment. It is up to us to determine if that experience is positive or negative.”
Dr. Seuss or Sensei Seuss’s quote today is along the same philosophy.
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened. Choose happiness over sadness. Smiling over Crying.
