Panic attacks

It never seems to fail that once I even mentally acknowledge that things are okay, and that I'm past something, it inevitably creeps up again. I was thinking of this last night, and thought that perhaps rather than saying lesson learned about whatever upset has occurred, we should just say "lesson learned...for now." It seems that the cycles are doomed to repeat, and the heights of happy are soon to be replaced by the anxious and sad. The trick is really learning to acknowledge the anxiety for what it is, and to ride it out as best we can quickly. And perhaps try to fix the item that seems to put us in this place again and again. 

Any thoughts? Anyone?
