“People who fly into a rage always make a bad landing”. ~ Will Rogers
Twenty minutes after yelling at the two munchkins and packing them off to school without their daily hugs, I drove in to work with a clenched jaw and a pensive mood. Even before the school bus had turned the corner, I found myself feeling quite ashamed of my tantrum. By the time I arrived in my chill new office (yeah, I knew you’d remember that one!), I had built up the munchkins into woefully wronged cherubs. I brooded that something’s got to change. “Be the change you want to see in the world” came the annoying Gandhi-esque voice in my head. You really need to stop reading quotes, I growled back at myself. Unless they are by Jack Handey.
Later that morning, making an entry in my diet diary set off a light bulb in my head. After all, the scale shows a 2 lb weight loss in the past three weeks with not much more effort than just keeping that diary! So, I started a mini anger diary:
Not too shabby, huh? We’ll see how long this lasts. But for now, I am enjoying the smiles.
