What to Do When Chaos Strikes

What to do when chaos strikes

Sometimes, well, let’s face it, a lot of the time, things don’t go according to our master plan. It could be our plan for the day, for our long-awaited vacation, or simply in the parking lot looking for a place to park.

When things go wrong we have 2 basic choices:

Be calm or get upset.

We can laugh or cry.

We can see it as an interruption in our life or as something that was supposed to be in our life at that exact moment for reasons we may or may not know now or ever. The reason is not important. Let’s take a look at why the calm reaction is a good habit to form and how to do it. Continue Reading →

I Have Enough

Enough - Buddha

I have enough of everything to allow myself to be calm, content, and happy.

I have enough time. (I take care of each activity, one at a time. I prioritize my work so the most important things get done first.)

I have enough resources. (I have abundance in my life. Everything I truly need I have and will have as needed.)

I am protected. (I trust that I am protected and I release my fears of potential bad outcomes. I trust that all good things are coming my way and that I am strong enough to handle any storms of life.)

I am calm and confident. (I don’t worry about my to-do list because I take care of things with ease.)

Each thing I do is easy for me. (I take things at a reasonable pace and find ways to enjoy it all.)

Life is Good!

peace not anger

The other day, I took a wrong turn while driving in a parking lot. I immediately realized my mistake, but before I could wave “sorry” to the driver next to me, she was beeping and cursing me out furiously. If this had happened in the grocery store with a shopping cart instead of a car, I hardly think most people would unload that kind of anger. It would be quite shocking and scary if they did.

When I saw the look of rage on this woman’s face as she drove by me, it was still shocking even though I couldn’t hear her. I just wanted to say sorry, but she didn’t give me the chance. Then I felt angry at her impatience. And then I thought about it. I’m sure I’ve done the same thing to other people myself. *shame* In fact, I was doing it immediately to her. Maybe she was having a bad day.

The bottom line is this. Anger helps no one. For yourself, when you are angry it is the equivalent to drinking poison. For the person receiving your anger, it only creates either anger or sadness in the other person, and probably doesn’t get you the result you really want, which is what? What are we looking for when we are angry?
