Before You Freak Out, Ask Yourself These Questions

Does getting upset provide you with more options?

When you worry, what are you choosing not to see?

Are you worrying about what will happen later instead of doing the right thing, right now?

Does what happened keep you from acting with justice, generosity, self-control, sanity, prudence, honesty, humility, and straightforwardness?

What if we regarded it as an opportunity rather than a disaster?
