good advice - not heeding this is why I work full-time, making the school auction quilt, am the lead food coordinator for the auction, etc. At least I have deleted most of my angry emails before they hit cyberspace. I don't even put the recipient in the to: line until I'm really ready to send a bitchy email.
Forgiveness. If you are angry, sin not. A lot of the times, we are chastised for anger, or for being uncharitable to others. Fair enough; that chastisement is deserved. But do we think enough about how holding onto anger and lack of charity hurts US by weighing down our souls? Think of forgiveness in terms of taking care of YOURSELF, too.
People say I'm too nice. That I need to grow a back bone and stand up for myself. That I need to be mean every once in awhile. But I'd rather be good, treat others good, and put good into this mean world. I think I'm stronger and tougher than any "mean" person by smiling and walking away. I'll always do my best to choose to be good.
