But unless that anger can be channeled into energy to do something (say for instance I was actually on the football field and could TACKLE an opponent) it's not doing us much good. It's not doing us any good.
So why not make a better choice?
When something in life disappoints us, do we need to get unhappy? Will that change things? I also admit to getting upset when things don't go my way. Did that improve the situation? Of course not. There are better choices available.
So this week, facing deadlines and new living arrangements and travel delays and irate relatives (OK, my mom is mad at me again...) I will choose happiness instead. Puppies and kittens. My favorite music. My guitar. Maybe even a bike ride toward the mountains (not actually IN the mountains buddy, do I look like Bradley Wiggins to you?). Whatever else happens, I will find a way to choose happiness.
It makes me smile. It makes me glow. It keeps me out of trouble.
How about you?
