How David Arquette Helped Me

Last week, or maybe it was just a few days ago, I watched an episode of Oprah (oh how I have missed you) and her guest was David Arquette.  I was sucked in from the beginning.  (Oprah is the BEST interviewer--no matter how many times she interrupts her guests..I STILL love her).  
The interview pretty much consisted of David telling his downward spiral story and how he is working on himself now.  I really respected him for his honesty.  He said one thing that really stuck out in my mind over the last few days.  It was something his yoga instructor told him (so she probably read it from a Buddhist reading or something and I am probably butchering the quote) but it went something like this:

"Anger is like drinking poison and expecting someone else do die"  

mind blowing statement to me.  

And I've replaced "Anger" with other negative emotions like, stress, anxiety.....all of those icky feelings.  It just registers in my head, this statement.  I thought I would pass it along to you all in case it makes you go "AH-HA" as well.

Happy Wednesday!  Let's all stop drinking poison, shall we?
