Reflections on Irritability
Ever felt irritable?
I am a tea drinker and I ordered my favorite tea a week ago and the tea is not here. I am drinking a tea that I have in my cabinet for the past few days and it’s good but not the one I want. I know it’s a little thing, but I really like my brand of tea. Trying to be okay with this but…….
Then I broke a glass bowl in the kitchen, and it went everywhere. I do mean everywhere because it took an hour to clean the mess. Have you ever tried to clean up glass with five cats doing the curious cat thing? I was certain that herding cats was not possible and now I am even more certain that getting cats to not be curious is not possible. I was irritable before and now add frustrated on top…. Yikes!
I am not sure what to do with myself.
I am a resourceful person, so I take a walk. I know how to move energy, but this only served to increase my ‘darkness’. I started chanting positive affirmations and my mood continued to worsen. Watch out world!!!! I figured that I needed to cry so I watched a romance movie. I cried during the movie but was restless afterwards. I started putting laundry away and emptying the dishwasher. Suddenly, I was tired and quiet. The irritability was gone. Phewwwww…….
What was that all about?
I am not sure. I recognized the emotions, but they did not have a story or memory attached. My conclusion is that it was energy that needed to be released. I consciously interacted with the emotions and acted to release the energy. I am not labeling the emotions or energy as good or bad. I am calling it “just energy”.
I am glad I chose to focus on the way to release it instead of sharing it ‘on’ someone. How do you handle irritability?
