Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Monday

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…sometimes I just don’t know what to do with my anger. 

I do my best to stay calm, cool, and collected under any situation.   I can usually step back from my own emotions and take a look at what else is there besides my ego.  I really do try to see the other side of a conflict, offer up solutions, and attempt to reach a mutually-satisfying agreement. I pretty much try to avoid any sort of unpleasantness with people and strive to be kind no matter the circumstances.  But sometimes…I just want to SCREAM!  

In a previous romantic relationship, I engaged in enough bad behavior that I decided life is too damn short to be angry, disappointed and resentful.   It still is hard sometimes to surrender and allow my not-so-nice feelings and emotions to just be present within me.  Sometimes having a cold splash in the ocean is exactly what I need to calm me down, cool me off, and collect my wits about me again.  

What is the best way you’ve found to make peace with your anger?

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall “What is something you should have said a long time ago?” I’m tired.   I think the ending of friendships can sometimes be ten times more difficult than the ending of romantic relationships.  While I’m not pleased to say I’ve had more of the latter, I’m glad there have only been a few [...]

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…  ”What’s made you smile lately?” I got a little goodie in the mail from my sister, Shannon today.  Any time I receive a handwritten letter or card is a treat, but today’s puffy-sized envelope contained more than just words.  There was a  Willy Wonka Fun Dip candy inside.   My sister [...]
