Dealing with anger

We all get angry once in a while, some more often than others. That’s life.

Angry with ourselves. Angry with other people. Just angry.

There was a quote along the lines of “Holding onto anger is like holding hot coal and waiting to throw it at someone else. You are the one who gets burned.”

For me, dealing with anger is simple. I don’t get angry. It has taken many years of practice at being calm and meditating each day. And it works.

There are many occasions where i could get angry and some people get angry with me because i don’t get angry, but Ralph Waldo Emerson said “for every minute you are angry, you have lost 60 seconds of happiness”

I choose to be happy. I hope you do too.


So, this is the big idea. #55Alive is to inspire others to be more active.

Active in both mind and body.

I want to challenge myself to inspire others and do something that is doable and to simply raise awareness to be more active.

Sounds simple?

I think we all know that being more physically active helps with our overall wellbeing, but did you know that having a more active mind helps reduce risks of Alzheimer and Dementia also?

I need your help.

In addition to hopefully completing a series of organised challenges over the next 5 years to raise awareness and vital funds for a number of charities, i want to do scenting different. Completely different.

Here is an outline of what i want to do.

5km walk, 50km cycle ride, for 55 consecutive days in 55 different locations. In addition to this new kind of triathlon, walk, cycle, drive i would also like to blog the experience on a daily basis, technology permitting deepening on my location.

What do you think?
