When my computer crashed on Monday, I went through a whirlwind of emotions in less than five minutes. Since I never thought it would happen to me, I wasn't adequately prepared mentally or physically to handle it. After spending more than 48 hours in mental anguish, my computer was restored. Ilost all of my email data and contact list which took me nearly two years to build. I also lost unfilled book ordersfrom customers. But "I" survived. So since hindsight is 20/20, I wanted to offer some tips to you to help you survive your own possible meltdown.

1) Re-channel your frustrations.When you are releasing negative energy guess what?You’re going to receive nothing but negative energy back in return. Once you let that negativity go, your life will start to fall back into a sense of order.

2) Find things you can do to occupy your time.Pick up your Bible and read some scriptures—meditate on them and then pray.Prayer is always good for the soul plus it helps calm your spirit.If you’re not into Bible study, find another interesting book to read or get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.

3) Meditate. This is an ideal time to meditate and listen to your inner spirit. I believe when chaotic things happen, it is for a reason and God is trying to get your attention and focus back on Him so you can be renewed and rejuvenated.

4)Do something nice for someone else.Just like milk is supposed to do a body good---helping someone else will do your heart a whole lot of good and the person you do it for will appreciate it so much more when they realize you did it under duress with a smile on your face.But whatever you do, don’t commit an act of kindness while dwelling on your own misery.

5) GET OVER IT! It happened. It's a lesson learned and you move on.
