Maybe it’s a normal work week for you. You turn off your alarm clock and wipe your eyes. You pour your coffee and hit the road for work. You turn on the radio and drive.
Then that normal week goes awry. Maybe at a red light, another car bumps you from behind. Nobody’s hurt, but it makes you late and now you have to deal with getting your car fixed. Maybe you lose a contract at work. Maybe your husband calls you at lunch and tells you there’s a leak in the dining room and the floor is ruined. Maybe life is getting a little hard.
When little things go wrong, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You may feel as if you’ve taken two steps forward, only to take three steps back, so how do we respond when things go wrong?
