View all problems as challenges. Look upon negativities that arise as opportunities to learn and to grow. Don't run from them, condemn yourself, or bury your burden in saintly silence. You have a problem? Great. More grist for the mill. Rejoice, dive in, and investigate.
~Bhante Henepola Gunaratana
James's comment: I can especially relate to the don't "condemn yourself." Often when I realize that i did not make a mindful choice I then beat myself up only adding more problems and fuel to the fire of the first problem!
