Being stuck in a traffic jam, witnessing an animated conversation, waiting in a long line are some situations that have long exasperated me. Now I take advantage of these opportunities to cultivate my compassion, my patience, and my sensitivity. I am learning to be mindful of my own reactions and those of others. I appreciate the tranquility that, over time, settles into my being. The regular practice of Taoist Tai Chi® arts has become the key for me to find peace, balance and harmony in my daily life.
