I wanted to share here how we might best respond to adversity, or when we make a mistake, to prevent us from making the worst of things, and rather, encouraging us to make the best of things. The example I’m using derives from Buddhist philosophy, not ‘shooting the 2nd arrow’, so we don’t find ourselves in double-trouble: we experience misfortune, the first arrow, and make the situation worse by responding in an unhelpful way to it, with the 2nd arrow.

 This is easier said than done of course. It requires us to be mindful, and accepting. Thankfully, these are skills we can learn and improve on.

I hope you might find the enclosed brief video interesting. Do let me know if you’d like a word about it at all.
