I got this “Aw, Snap!” message this morning on my computer – that dark gray image up above! It says…

Aw snap!

I thought this was a good system for dealing not only with my computer problems – but with all problems in life.

Step 1 for Dealing With Challenges:

I loved that this screen image’s first goal was to make me laugh.

I totally love the “Aw, Snap!” joke – with that funny pic.

Reading something funny reminded me how important it is to try to loosen up first when something goes wrong – in any and all areas of life!

I gotta say that I loved these funny “Aw, snap” words so much, I’m thinking of saying these words to myself next time something else challenging happens to me!

My new affirmation/mantra/2-word-helper-outer:

“Aw, Snap!”

I bet it will help me to aw-snap-out-of-it a little- get me to stop “sweating the small stuff” as my good friend Kristine Carlson says.

Step 2 For Dealing With Challenges:

The screen told me to reload – to try another page.

For me, this symbolically means to leave the scene of my frustration and do something to refresh myself.

Go for a walk. Breathe. Meditate.

Do something to get yourself clear!

Stop doing this frustrating action you’re now doing – which is obviously NOT working – and ONLY upsetting you over.

And over.

And over.

Basically, you gotta do something NEW in order to get refreshed – get clear – and remove all that static in your head.

I personally love to meditate!

Step 3 For Dealing With Challenges:

Dealing With Challenges can make you sad
Next up, the screen reminded me to watch out for repeated similar issues.

The screen warned me that I should not only try to fix this present issue – as it appears in my life in this moment.

I must also take time to consider if this is an ongoing, repeated issue!

I love this reminder – and it’s key to dealing with all challenges in life.

You must always do what you can to prevent a particular challenge from being an ongoing, repeated issue!

You should always be looking to see if you have repeated patterns of pain.

Then you must work to get to the root of the repeated issues – so they don’t keep repeating!
