Introducing: Mr. Gigantic, Earth-Shattering Crisis

Today, take things as they come. And we know how they come: one gigantic, earth-shattering crisis at a time - if we're lucky. Usually, it's more like a torrential baseball-sized hail storm, and your standing in an open field.

Today, we are going to tackle this! Think of one thing that weighs on you. Why is it such a burden? The why's will always lead us to the dilemma's roots. Choking vines will return no matter how many times you trim them; you must uproot them.

Now, let's give the situation character. What would it look like if it were a silly animation? A misfit superhero? A mysterious household object whose use is only suspected? Have an image?

Doodle a funny drawing of it - something that makes you smile - perhaps, even laugh. Keep this drawing with you as you conquer your day. Return to it every time you feel overwhelmed.

Now, Breathe...

Inhale: Today, life will not become an obligation.

Exhale:

Today, life is an adventure.

Inhale:

Today is a journey to savor.

Exhale:

Today, the possibilities for me to experience joyful contribution are at my fingertips.

Inhale:

Today, the ability to smile is in my hands!

Exhale:

Today, my dilemma is tackled. Mr. Gigantic, Earth-Shattering Crisis has got this!
