“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
60 Seconds of Happiness
Why the above quote? In my post titled “2013 Peony Series – 01” I provided the meanings of the Peony. Anger was one of the meanings. I chose this quote and image not because the image makes me feel angry, but because if you look closely at the image there is a Peony hiding in the background as though perhaps it is angry, or has caused anger.
I love the quote because it is so true and there is no value in holding onto anger, only in letting it go.
