I hate to disappoint to those who thought they might’ve discovered the next best thing but I’m following in the words of my friend @stopdropawaken and remembering that I AM HUMAN. Blissfully. Truly. Wholly. I am human.
And to be honest, I get angry. Often. I mean burn down the house, petty subtweet, hair flipping and name calling angry. I get knock down, drag out pissed.
Anger is not inherently a bad emotion and can be healthy in small doses. We all need to feel even the grittiest of emotions because it would be truly boring if I was sunshine and puppy kisses all of the time (okay, I might’ve been dramatic there, but you get the picture).
Just like every single living being out there—I don’t ride on clouds all of the time and my life isn’t a day dream. Things aren’t always perfect, I’m not always a model example of a good human, and I’ve done things I’m not proud of.
But as any good human should, I pick myself up by the boot straps and kick that anger right out—because that’s NOT what I stand for. Jealousy, bitterness, and violent rage have no places in my life. They simply do not serve my highest good.
And from there I remind myself gently,
“It’s okay to feel that way. Anger is natural. Emotion is natural. But at the end of the day, what matters the most is whether I chose to live in the light of love, or let anger cloud my sunshine.”
That was incredibly corny but I did it. I’m switching things up.
