One Year Later

Today marks one year since that little incident at work that initiated this whole new lifestyle. I have no problem seeing it as the beginning of something that turned out really great, but I still get pangs of bitterness and anger over the situation. I can't help but be so angry with a specific manager who was involved that I have these visions of coming across him in the street at night. I'll leave it at that. The situation was handled in such a clumsy way, and with such cold disregard for anything but to make an example out of me.

Laura gave me a very wise tidbit regarding this situation when I told her I was having a hard time letting my anger go, even in light of the fact that the situation led to something better. She said holding on to anger is like drinking poison hoping the other will die. Of course she is right.
