What’s it worth?

This morning I opened yesterday’s mail and got a pretty nasty surprise: a six thousand dollar medical bill. Mornings are stressful enough but this news threatened to send me directly over the edge. Fortunately, I was able to catch myself before I was tempted into acting unskillfully.

I considered the following: what is worse? An erroneous $6k bill or the akusala kamma of acting and speaking based on anger. Luckily the calculus was an easy one and it was just really enough to help me out the brakes on.


  1. Wish you a peaceful day!
