Emotional Turbulance

“When in the roller coaster of emotional turmoil … If I am to have serenity, I must STEP my way past emotional turmoil and its subsequent hangover, and be grateful for continuing spiritual progress.” — Daily Reflections

How do I know if emotional turbulence is coming my way? Simple. If I start feeling uneasy as someone is talking to me. If I’m upset the driver in front of me is going slow. If something I expected or really wanted doesn’t happen. If I feel sad, angry, hurt, lonely, confused, frustrated, or tired. These are the signs I look for, and it’s critical to see and respond to them quickly. What works well for me is writing down all these emotional triggers and next to them writing the response that will lead me back to serenity. I challenge you to try it. And if your so inclined, send me your solutions – and I’ll send you mine. TOGETHER we all get to be happy, joyous and free. ILML! – James
