I was reading in a book how Buddhism teaches us to accept that there will be low points in life, there will be incidents or actions that may trigger emotions…

But it also teaches us that those moments pass, like a dark cloud passing in the sky. The sun still shines. 

If we remember that, and don’t allow the emotion to control us, we are able to choose the way we feel and the actions we take.

This brought me some great peace yesterday even though things don’t appear to be amazing right now…

This attitude, plus gratitude… and I know everything will be ok no matter what.
