Avoiding Anger

"For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness." Ralph Waldo Emerson

How true.  I have found it is important for me to avoid anger in any form.  For me it is usually mild irritation over something that I must avoid.  The minute I entertain irritation, it is as if a train in my mind is set in motion, and I am taken along for a ride.  It is not that I ever lose control of myself, except in my thoughts, which will take the mild irritation and reinforce it.  It is very bad for my health, so I avoid getting on the train.  I decline the invitation to be irritated.
