Emotional Agility

I recently read an article about a new book by Susan David...

The emotional skills Dr. David encourages us to teach our children are ones I need to put into mindful practice:

Feel It

Show It

Label It

Watch It Go

Our moment in history seems to be providing a rich learning opportunity...

A chance to experience and name the ugliness of the world and, rather than absorb and harbor it, transform it through love into beauty and let it go.

I'm drawn to the quote, "Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end." That's a hard faith to maintain when history consistently marries the thriving of one population to the suffering of another. But what else is there to do but try and manifest a future that outshines the present?
