You find yourself smack in the middle of a situation you didn’t create. The initial reaction might be to have a meltdown or go into an end of the world rage (depending on the situation) or you start singing que sera sera (what ever will be, will be) and say “whatever!” Sometimes, I opt for the third option but since I can’t sing… oh well, you can only imagine.
Believe me, it takes a lot for me to reach meltdown status and I don’t mean the panicky kind. Recently I experienced some incidents at work and personal that sent me into nuclear mode (which I do not recommend if you can avoid it). This wasn’t the quick blow over, it had a lingering effect which had me questioning the surrounding world’s sanity and of course I had to perform a little inner psychiatric evalutation (I think I passed… I think). Once I reverted back to the calm and patient guy, I began to take it all in stride and regained my understanding that s**t happens and it’s not the end of the world. In those moments it’s just an instinctive reaction but we have to let cooler heads prevail. Life is life and it doesn’t present itself as an easy going plan. Sometimes all the wisdom, philosophy, inspiration, spirituality, new age, whatever gets you through thoughts do not work and you just roll with the punches or sing….
