Otherwise it will choose problems that can't be solved.

I was trying hard not to lose my sh*t this morning.

It takes a lot for me to lose my cool at this stage of my life. I have a lot of good mental tools that I use to shift perspective when the unexpected happens. And...

You have to plan to let your mind wander.

Last week was a whopper for me.
