Way Back Wednesday--- Settle Down

     Have you ever wondered what you look like when you're mad?  Well here's my snapshot.  Who said honeymoons are all roses?  Ha.  I don't remember why I was upset and in there lies the blog lesson of today.  Being mad can make anyone ugly.  Before we make a mountain out of a mole hill, we should take a moment of reflection in our hearts and minds...and the mirror.  'Will I remember this a year from now?' is a good question to ask yourself before going ballistic on someone.
    Maturity should bring about a cooler, calmer and less easily provoked sense of anger.  That is not true in everyone but I can say it's true for me.  If you think I'm still hot headed, then just be glad you know me now, not before.  ha.  Humility is part of my work in progress journey.
   'A wise man keeps his anger under control but a fool gives full vent to his anger.'  Proverbs is a good source of how to become wiser in our foolish bodies.  'Settle down' is another good rule of thumb.  Count to 10 or a 100 to get yourself under control and avoid a snapshot like mine above.
