Why do we take the time to be mad? It hit me that I just don’t want to waste the time being mad about anything any more. I have spent enough of my time being mad about so much and all it brought me were sleepless nights, unnecessary arguments that didn’t get me anywhere, a screw face at the time that I was mad which will contribute to my wrinkles at a later age, broken relationships or friendships, but most of that wasted time I could have been celebrating something, smiling about something, creating something, anything positive. Life happens we definitely cannot stop that but we can stop our reactions. If we take 2 seconds to catch ourselves and think about the best way to handle issues that arise other than just getting mad we would save so much time and keep the wrinkles away.
“Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret— it only causes harm.”
Psalms 37:8 NKJV
