Rolling with the punches
Rolling with the punches instead of punching… As Zen as we may try to be, there will be times where situations,
events or people will really test you.
What do you do in these instances? Some of us get angry, some
yell, some cry, some just want to get away from it all.
What we need to realize is that is a momentary situation. What is
going on at that particular moment is simply an event in time and
does not translate into all eternity nor should you let it control your
state of being. So your car broke down…ok great! What are you
going to do next? Getting angry or upset isn’t going to make the car
start. Call your mechanic. You spilled your coffee….ok so it is. What
are you going to do next? Pour yourself another cup and clean up
the mess. Getting upset isn’t going to clean up the mess for you.
Accept what is, adjust your game plan and move forward!
