Today I Was Angry

Today I was angry.

I did everything I normally do to help me subside this emotion, but I was still angry.

I meditated and I was still angry.

I worked out and I was still angry.

I ate good, healthy food, and I was still angry.

I watched funny T.V. shows and I was still angry.

I read and I was still angry.

I listened to music and I was still angry.

I listened to funny podcasts and I was still angry.

And then I wrote, and like leaves blowing in the wind on a cool November afternoon my anger was swept away.   

I made a list of things that help me cope with my anger, and today writing was the one that did it for me. 

Find out what that thing is for you.

Or you can let the anger flow through you and let it pass, instead of holding it inside and letting it burn you up.  

Or you can take a step back and observe your emotions, and see what happens then.

Either way, try something, because trying helps.
