Anger can be like a hurricane. In the “eye” of the storm there is peace. Therefore, I can find calm waters in the midst of the turbulence.
Affirmation: I feel and direct my emotions wisely.
Practice: Sit mindfully with anger. Ask: Where does it live in my life? What is it really about? (Usually not the reason we think.) And, What can I learn here? Practice listening with love.
