You Can Win

Don’t be angry,
don’t get mad
because it really
makes me sad.
Put on a smile,
just grin and bear it.
That’s much better
Than getting upset.
Close your eyes
and count to ten.
You’re strong –
Don’t let anger win!

Hi Connie - lovely poem for an attitude in life we don't really ever need to let out. There's usually a reason for everything ... when my Ma and uncle were ill and I was looking after both with visits and general care (and was exhausted) ... if something cropped up - I'd say to myself I need to turn on my heel and re think - re-calibrate ... and now I say at times look at the other side of your hand - it's different, a different set of circumstances etc ... cheers and good to see you again - Hilary

Yup, some days you just need a big yellow smiley face and someone to remind you that you're strong! Thanks you =)

It is important to try to look on the positive side. Sometimes we get upset or mad and we need to stand our ground, other times we need to think about what is causing our feelings and if our reaction is going to make the situation better or worse.

Nice to see the big smile. :)
