Surprised

I am sometimes surprised at the level of anger that surges out of me and the quickness with which it rises. Those days it seems that I have been holding, quelling, dissipating, reasoning away this emotion for so long and then the fuse just burns out. I am immediately able to check myself, rein it all in but it's always a shock to realize that all "that" was just under the surface, invisible to my soul's eye. Scary stuff.

I sometimes think of myself as Ms. Vesuvius...one big "belch" and I usually feel much better!! ;)

And it always seems to be some little thing that sets it off.
Scary stuff, indeed, but as long as we are able to rein it in...
