Equanimity, now there's a word we don't hear so much. Mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.
* May I be steady in this period of change.
* May I be present in this period of difficulties.
* May I stay centered in the heat of the moment.
*May I be free from obsession with the past or future.'
~ this was from the back of the card.
Today if I encounter a challenging moment or situation, I will remind myself of this mantra as I count to ten.
This is card from a little meditation deck that I found at a yard sale last year. No author is noted on the cards and there was no box or booklet. So I thank the unknown author(s).
