You know how I can’t resist the occasional piece of advice from the Buddha Dhamma – well here’s something Mark found that’s not only the best advice in the world, but’ll make you shout with laughter and release that anger all in the same nanosecond …
I liked this on Mark’s blog as well. 2nd post I’ve read today about anger. Anger is a great tool but yes, holding onto it is like holding onto a out of control power saw, I believe 🙂
Luckily I seem not to get as angry now as I did when I was younger, but I remember what a destructive force it was, for me. An out of control power saw, yes – something like that!
words of wisdom ….
Wish they were mine … 🙂
This couldn’t have popped up at a better time. Thank you.
Things like that usually do, Michelle! Glad to be the conveyor … 🙂
I liked the sly wickedness of it. On top of the hoot of laughter, it’s tried and true, Angeline said:)
A saying that has helped me through a mountain of anger at one time in my life! So true!!
Tried and tested? Fantastic Angeline:)
I’ve heard this saying before, and just love how it nails what it means not to let go of the past, and not being able to forgive people for their mistakes that they might be themselves regretting about.
I’ve never heard it like this – brilliant. Glad you liked it too:)
My pleasure. Great minds think alike:).
I didn’t think of it NY – just borrowed it from Mark who found it somewhere on the web during his trawling … 🙂
Thanks for adding this to your blog. It is such a strong truth.
I thought it was priceless. Glad you liked it too:)
That’s great – not one I had heard before 🙂
I’d not heard it in that guise before either! 🙂
There’s always something pithy or true at Mark’s site:)
Yes how true… we all get so bitter sometimes don’t we? It is so hard for us to let go. I know I work very hard at not letting all the little things bother me. (and lately there was A LOT of little things, big things and thngs in general at work that is exhausting. It can really wear on you after awhile and suck the happiness away. I read somewhere once that even on the worst days something good has happened… focus on that. It does help! I read a blog that was freshly pressed the other day (sorry it escaped me now and I cannot give them credit), but they talked about anger, bitterness and negitive thinking as Aunt Zelda. When she shows up politely ask her to leave! How good is that?
I like the one about Aunt Zelda – a personalisation of the original saying which goes something like if anger arises, refuse to acknowledge it!
You must be almost home now. Hope Dubai gave you a chance to catch up?
Still here now… 2 more hours. Internet didnt cooperate, so will catch up at home… Will need a few days to veg out 😉
How simply b….y terrible – what an interminable wait it must have been without having the distraction of blogging! Up up and away … enjoy the flight as best you can …
I did get on and get through a few comments. They had wi-fi on my flight (last leg) so I could have even then! I didn’t try it though… too tired at that point and tried tp get some much slept… no easy task when the pane doubled as a nursery! Yes that many crying babies. On the ground again and just slept 12+ hours. Should be over the jet leg after that nap 😉
Jet lag disappeared? Have a wonderful holiday!
Thanks. I am pretty lucky and don’t usually have jet lag. Had it once really bad, so I learned my lesson and how to beat it. Just really tired since little sleep due to many crying children on the flights.
Well isn’t that the truth. It’s also true that it takes more muscles to frown than smile so we should all be giving everyone a smile in passing! It brightens your day, too!
Doesn’t it just! Thanks for reminding me:)
