Stop Letting the Unexpected Control You

You wake up in the morning feeling great about your day. Then, you get in your car and it won’t start, or you spill coffee on your new skirt just before a meeting, or the babysitter calls to say she’ll be late.

And, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. One after another, unexpected things happen until you want to scream!

Wait a minute; force yourself to relax and recognize the unexpected for what it is – one of life’s surprises. Take a deep breath and rationally consider your options. Choose the most appropriate way to deal with the situation, then move on.

When you slow down and take this calm approach, you’re empowering yourself with control. And, soon, your attitude will brighten back to the eagerness and energy with which you originally greeted the dawn.
