Sometimes my brain gets stuck in a rut of thinking about something over and over again, and I can’t make it stop.
Today was one of the those days. Right before I started painting, something was brought to my attendtion that made me steaming MAD. I spent about 30 minutes stewing, before I decided to stop wasting this emotional energy and focus on something more uplifting.
A friend of ours is the Director of the organization “Together for Adoption.” I decided to distract my mind and listen to some of the audio messages on his web site this morning. So instead of spending my day plotting REVENGE at this “wrong” which had been done to me, I am happy to say that my mind was filled with more productive thoughts (which is certainly is a much more enjoyable way paint than being filled with anger.)
Nothing has changed in my situation, but hearing these great messages on adoption at http://www.togetherforadoption.org/?page_id=44 definitely put things into perspective for me, and my anger is gone (at least for now!) 🙂
