I love this!
If you become so engulfed in your own success and happiness you do forget all the other things around you that have caused you angst. And this such a great way to let go of anything.
Find something you are passionate about and go for it. You will be surprised at how it makes you feel.
WOW! Now that really says it like it is…..
I am sure there have been lots of people who have been angry at a loved one who died and they never got to say they were sorry. Not anything I want to happen to me, that’s for sure.
I think this is a good quote to remember when you are angry at someone…. If they were to die tomorrow was it worth wasting your time being angry…. Probably NOT!
Think about it!
Just imagine if you have been angry with someone for a week….. That would be 10080 minutes of happiness that you have lost. When you look at it like that it seems to me, a sure waste of time.
Think of all the fun things you could have been doing during that time that you were focused on your anger.
Next time you are angry about something or someone, think about those seconds and minutes you are wasting of happiness.
Are you still holding on to yesterday’s junk? The regrets, hurts, fears, guilt, shame, or anger don’t allow you to move forward. I think if you are holding on tight to the junk of yesterday it won’t let you reach out to something new. Isn’t it time to wash away the past and start a new? Give yourself a gift and let go of those useless items!
When I see people get angry for no reason (like a plane leaving late because of inclement weather) I think of this quote. There is some reason why they are showing their anger. Are they afraid that they won’t get to their next destination on time, are they sad because their Mother just died and they can’t get there, or are they confused because they don’t know what to do?
There are many reasons why people get angry and I actually think that anger can be healthy but to me it depends on how you express that anger. You can be firm and direct but belittling someone, in my opinion, is never, ever right.
So the next time you get angry, stop for a minute, take a deep breath and try to figure out if the anger is coming from fear, sadness or confusion before you lash out.
