When faced with a problem in the moment, your options may first seem to be very few. If each scenario were approached as an opportunity to live and to learn, options become much more substantial and plentiful.
In the experience of unsettling emotions, we close ourselves off from the limitless thoughts and actions we may have had to resolve such problems. From a strong and confident mindset to overcome these emotions, we are able to generate numerous and creative approaches for resolve.
In the continuum of present approach, we can at one end either run uphill or downhill at full force or at the other end we would pause with no movement at the top or the bottom of the hill. In balance, let it be that you would consider the emotions as you think and react to learn and to live from each experience. Do not allow the emotions to control you so that you pause indefinitely. Inactivity generally produces only imagined suffering, so move on to learn within reality.
“All you need are these: certainty of judgment in the present moment; action for the common good in the present moment; and an attitude of gratitude in the present moment for anything that comes your way.” — Marcus Aurelius —
