This year we have taken a mini-tour of the many faces of anger – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Anger is a very human emotion, and it is unlikely it will ever go away. So recognizing that reality and armed with facts and the power that knowledge brings, it’s now up to you to decide what you will do.
- Are you willing to be honest with yourself and authentic with others?
- Are you willing to do the very hard work of evolving your relationship with anger so you can tip the scales in favor of positive action?
- Are you willing to be more compassionate with yourself so you can be more compassionate with others?
- Are you willing to let go and have faith there will be a next to catch you?
As 2017 comes to a close, my wish for you in 2018 is a life filled with greater ease, a more powerful sense of well-being, and the buoyancy that can come from laying down the heavy burden of the negative forces of energy and the activation of change that can come from leveraging your anger and transforming it into a positive force for good for you and for the world. Never underestimate the ripple effect one small action can have.
