I, myself, have borne witness to some not nice behavior of late. Some on the road (aggressive driving), some regarding not keeping adequate social distancing. In fact, last week, I asked someone in line behind me to give me more space. I gave the person in front of me the required six feet, and the gentleman I'm referring to was approximately one foot behind me. He snapped at me. "You have plenty of room," he defiantly stated. I wasn't going to argue the point, and basically moved out of line, so that I would have appropriate distance.
There's a lot of anger out there. And, we just don't know what those individual experiences have been. The (ain't no) gentleman behind me is dealing with his own stuff. Was his reaction to me warranted? I didn't think so, but I'm not him. I chose to smile (under my mask). I chose to tap into my own happiness. When you are happy, how can you be angry? Interesting enough, it goes both ways. And, when you are angry, how can you be happy?
Treat yourself to any one of the hundreds of books on finding happiness for yourself. Or, patronize your Public Library and find one there. Take a Happiness Master Class, or, easier yet, go on You Tube, and put the simple word, "Happiness" into the task bar.
And, finally, dear friends, may the New Year bring you joy and may you be surrounded with love.
