You are afraid to fly and your plane hits turbulence. You grab a hold of the armrest as tight as you can and focus all your mental energy keeping the plane aloft. Five minutes later, you fly out of the storm, and the Captain informs everyone it is smooth sailing from here.
Good think you were there.
It seems silly to think about but too often we think we can just avoid every bump in the road in this life with enough wishful thinking.
