The ‘Why’ behind this weeks Verse:
Anger can be a dangerous emotion and life is too precious/ too short to put it toward things that aren't even worth the time or energy. Sometimes we just have to catch ourselves.
How It Relates to My Life:
At one of my group sessions someone recently asked me “Are you ever in a bad mood?...You’re always so upbeat. I never seen you acting any different”. Let me be the first to clear the airwaves this week by saying ➡️ Don’t think for one second that I don’t get angry about situations. I know some of you follow me on social media , others are clients of mine, a number of you attend my group sessions in person or may just know me from a past event and this website alone. I might walk around with a glow and smiling every time you see me but just like you or any other human being, behind closed doors I have expressed my anger by saying words that aren’t in the Bible lol, banging on a table or two or three, and even putting on a pair of boxing gloves to hit the heavy bag to let off some steam. I wanted to be open about this because it’s normal to privately vent when we are boiled up and getting mad has gotten the best of us. Anger can be a very dangerous emotion. Think about how many times we may have said something or done something at the heat of the moment, or even almost tarnished a valuable relationship with someone in our lives all over a reaction to a misunderstanding that could’ve went different if we collected ourselves and calmed down. Every downfall from anger is usually avoidable. Key word: “usually” because some things are out of our control but the way we react to small scale things or things that aren’t that deep is completely up to us. Remember it’s ok to get to yourself and vent because it’s not hurting anybody at the end of the day. Keep in mind that it’s healthier to acknowledge our frustrations vs immediately reacting to them then later down the line finding ourselves in deep regret over it. The past is the past but we can make less mistakes going forward by trying our best to stay true to God's word. The more we move in His teaching , the more peace of mind can be assured upon us. He already stated in so many ways His will is the perfect will. We'll never be perfect in this life but the closer we can get to striving for perfection at God’s written standards, the more complete and content we will be reflecting on the decisions we've made.
How It Relates to My Workouts:
If you don't have boxing gloves and a heavy bag (which I like to do as an exercise to vent) then try going for a brisk walk or finding a dance video to follow along with to let off that energy. As an individual you'll have to find a type of exercise to your liking so keep experimenting & you'll find your "Go To" Workout!
