Up and down, up and down. Sometimes our internal state of “wellness” feels like it’s on a yoyo over which we have no control, doesn’t it? We know it requires a daily practice to keep ourselves where we want to be emotionally, psychologically, physically and spiritually. We also know that we are our best, most authentic selves when we can stay centered in the spirit of Love and Openness. Yet, time and again, we fall off the wagon. All it takes is an unkind word, an inconsiderate action, or an overwhelming of fear and anxiety and bam! We’re frustrated, angry, insecure and in danger of throwing everything else that is good in the day out the window.

Are you going to throw away the other $86,390 in hopes of getting back at the person who took your $10? No, of course not. That would be foolish. Now, consider that there are 86,400 seconds in every day. Is it really worth it to throw away your entire day because of the 10 seconds of negativity or frustration that might come your way?
