It makes a difference how people react to you when you are calm. For the most part you don’t know what another person is going through. Perhaps they don’t feel well, have worries, just got bad news, or have just plain big egos. So your gift to that person is to stay calm no matter what happens. To do this takes a special level of awareness. It is not easy especially when you don’t feel well, have worries or just got bad news and your ego is just as big.
By staying calm you give your self the same gift. With calmness comes peace and with peace comes clarity of mind. My mantra today is to “stay calm”. Especially since I am on my way to the Dept of Motor Vehicles here in Queens, NY. I am sure this will be a test of my resolve.
