Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret. ~Ambrose Bierce
Ok, this will be a tricky one. Short of living in a cave and not going outside, how do you avoid not getting angry or aggravated at something that normally would anger or aggravate you?
So, here’s my challenge for today, no matter what happens to me, I will not get angry. If someone cuts me off on the road, I will wave hello…with all of my fingers. If one of my kids or grandkids talk back to me, I will count to ten, smile and tell them that we will discuss it another day (when I haven’t made this silly pledge). If a coworker does something that I have told him or her not to do ten times over, I will not call them names in my head and wonder why they are still employed, instead I will just explain it one more time…with a smile of course.
I can do this…I can do this…I can do this…
