We all have emotional ups and downs in our lives. One day (or minute), we feel fantastic, and the next, we feel angry or down. Life is full of emotional roller coaster rides. One of the secrets to living a more fulfilling life is to learn to absorb the good and the bad with equanimity, a calm attitude, in other words.
