Blog Post # 260 – Wake Up Angry

Some people wake up angry.

They then stay that way most of the day.

When something it happens, they view it through their anger prism.

They find ample evidence that the world sucks and that they deserve to be angry.

Everyone else is to blame for their crappy little life.

They believe, honestly, that the world is conspiring against them.

These people walk through their day looking for a fight.

You may see these types pop up in your Facebook feed from time to time.

Content not only to fight with their actual friends on social media, but they also spend time fighting with complete strangers.

Everything is bad, bad, bad and it is all someone else’s fault.

Anger is a state of being and it can be very hard to shake.

But why go through life like this?

Why surrender our sense of balance and of happiness to the whims of chance and the actions of others?

We can choose to be happy or we can choose to be angry.

It actually is a choice.

This may be hard to see when our anger entraps us and refuses to let go.

But if we center are make ourselves still, the anger may dissipate.

We may try looking for the good things in our day.

To turn the tide on our anger.

We can get out of that dark place of hopelessness and resentment.

I know this because I have done it.  More than once.

And if I can do it, I believe that you can too.

Find the good, ignore the bad.

Commit to finding one good thing in your day and hold on to it.

Let that be the prism in which you view your day.

And then tomorrow, find two.
