I let an email about something (that wasn’t going to matter a year from now) totally get under my skin this morning. This email RUINED my morning…. until I realized that this person/matter should not have this much control over my life.
Thankfully, I had afternoon plans and knew that I needed to snap out of it, instead of wallering in self-pity.
Thanks to a couple of great resources (Bible, thankful for the app on my Droid and a few positive thinking websites), I was able to regain control and decide that nothing should have the power of me to control my emotions. Now, if I could have only learned this when I was a hot headed teenager…or apply this when watching Football. Besides, when I looked up from email and saw this amazing group of pictures, who stay mad?
