Had a similar thought today, thinking about all the angry people in my life. We're so used today, to feeling angry first and then finding reasons why we should feel angry (and granted, there are reasons), that we've forgotten how important it is to create reasons to be happy and hopeful. It's easy to have your strings pulled and your buttons pushed when you're discontent. But when you have a sense of hope and control in your life? Man, it's a powerful firewall.
