i was very angry yesterday. unfortunately, some of the anger has carried over to today. there was no real reason for me getting so angry. a side effect of my anger was jorge also got angry.

i would like to say that i came in the house yesterday and told jorge right away that i was in a bad mood. there were a million things to do before gabe went to bed and not enough time to accomplish everything. also, i was starving!!! i hadn't planned on getting home so late so i kinda skipped dinner. i think almost everyone gets a little crabby when they are hungry. i wonder if that is how my anger/bad mood got so bad. i was really hungry, tired and overwhelmed.

sometimes, i feel so overwhelmed i cannot go to sleep at night because my brain won't shut off. i want to get up and do some of the things that are racing through my mind, but i also want to try to sleep. i don't have insomnia. i will eventually fall asleep. unfortunately, gabe wakes up soon after i do.

back to anger....i wish i knew a good technique to stop anger in its tracks. i mean everyone needs to get angry every once in a while but there are times when i am angry and it's unnecessary. i guess i will just try to take a deep breath and put things in perspective. i have a beautiful little man who adores me and who i adore. i also have a handsome big man who does the same (most days). i am pretty lucky. (and not so angry anymore)

I think you hit the nail on the head there. When I get overwhelmed and angry I do try to step back and remember the things that are going right in my life. There is always a lot to be thankful for even when things seem really awful. It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day and not see the big picture. Yoga really helps me to gain that perspective.

it's so hard sometimes when you are wrapped up in the moment. i don't always practice what i preach. however, if gabe is around it really does help to look at his smiling face.
i have tried yoga. i love it! i have trouble committing to an hour and a half session though. but i loved it!!
