OneKidsMom does anger management on two feet

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Beware, Barb's experimenting with new software... learning to merge her Webcam talks with her phone video... and today I'm sharing it with my Spark buds!

The things I'm having to manage anger about range from losing my sister in law waaaay too soon to my way of thinking to the tight time crunch and unrealistic expectations. And it's not just anger. Add sadness. Add fear or anxiety. Add in any negative emotion that could use a little "management". Here's what I'm doing about them these days.

    Thank you so much for your vlog today. It home today for me as well regarding "stress/anger" management. July was not a good month for me with the death of my father, and it has been hard at times to do my job as an HR Manager with some of the people I have to work with. I will definitely take your words to heart today and learn from them going forward. I need to get up earlier every morning and meet the sun for a grateful few minutes of peace and beauty.

    Nothing quite like a lake at sunrise to make everything right with the world.

    Love this blog -- it's great to hear your voice, see your face and share your gorgeous sunrise world.

    I agree that "stress" is often unacknowledged anger. But -- sometimes that anger is a signal that something needs to change and we suppress it and call it "stress" because we're not ready yet to make the change.

    You just mind find that "Mind Over Mood" workbook useful: I know I do when it's time to rethink management of the inevitable anxiety or depression that living life will generate!

    Yay! So good to hear a voice behind the picture. Awesome!

    You were preaching to the choir today. I had one of those stress anger related moments this week with a loved one. It wasn't pretty. I needed your lake for sure.

    Totally awesome. You must get up as early as I do.
    At the time you were out at the lake, I was already
    outside feeding the dog and chicks in the backyard
    and preparing to go to the café for coffee. Sunrise
    and morning are the best time of day to get into
    the moment. Leaving the stress and anger behind
    is always a good thing. Spark on! HUGS!

    THANKS for coming by to tell me it was working! This was SO worth coming back...AND it helps to have a voice to the person!

    You are doing GREAT in all you do and sharing it with US!

    I also am a morning person so we have even more in common than I knew already! GREAT video! emoticon I love your lake too!

    Ok, tried again and the video happened! You're soooooo right. So much of going thru life situations does involve anger issues, anger management and I feel uncomfortable thinking that about myself too! But, my dear, you are NOT alone. And for sure, WHO can be angry when you see such beauty as that lake, that sunrise. I typically am out the door by about 5;15 am (but . . . bad girl . . . don't always have my breakfast eaten yet! But I do when I get back. Ok, I digress). There is nothing more a sigh from Him that you have this day to do the best you possibly can with than a sunrise. Walking just sets your mind and soul free (for me anyway!) Better than any therapist's chair! LOL

    Thanks for sharing (true to my persistent self, I came back because I HAD to see your vlog!)

    Uh oh! Sorry, I couldn't get the video to work either. But my deepest sympathies on the passing of your SIL (I know it's been awhile, but she went through soooooo much! )

    HUGS and prayers and smiles.
