I know it. You know it. They know it. Everybody knows it.

Do NOT hit the publish button when you are angry.

Write all you want. But do NOT hit publish.

I was angrier than dickens this morning. Two things make me angry ...

1. When I am in a hurry and I get delayed. (I can almost always avoid being in a hurry.) But not always.

2. When my time is wasted for no good reason. This happened to me this morning.

Thank God I was in my car and at least an hour away from my computer. But my cell phone was right there.

"Don't text and drive. Don't text and drive. ...."

I am still angry ... but not as much as I was an hour ago.

And, I didn't hit publish. Until now.

When was the last time you published while angry? How'd that work out for you?

What TJ has to say about being angry. Not sure it originated with him, but the advice has been around a long time.

We can always think of a better way to say it. Even when we are not angry. Usually right after we hit SEND. Blah!

Don't fear anger when it flames but once left the embers that stay.

As humans the greatest forces we experience don't originate from the natural world from without but the twisted inner world from within.

Yeah- there are many times I shouldn't have hit the "SEND" button.

"the natural world from without but the twisted inner world from within"

Is it possible they are one and the same?

Quite possibly. Maybe we shape our physical world from the madness, longing, and desires in our hearts. The physical manifestation of our world may run parallel to how we conceive our own lives.
