I Never Knew I Was Bruce Banner
"Conflict breeds creativity". Thank Dr. Gregory House for that line (or actually the writer of the show). If it hasn't been apparent to you yet, yes I was and still am a fan of the show. As a matter of fact, if you must know, I like waking up to it. No, I don't have my television turned on upon waking up. I do, however, find it cool that I wake up feeling like a genius when I use my House ringtone as my morning alarm. It's either that or I wake up as a super hero using my Batman/Dark Knight ringtone. Either way, I wake up like I'm about to kick some ass. Really. Go check out the links and see how they make you feel. (Yes I'm a dork...a very cool dork, admit it!)
I like getting fired up like that, feeling as if I'm an angry genius doctor, out to solve the most amazing puzzles of the day, or an angry millionaire-turned-ninja with deep-seated issues taking it out on crooks and fighting for justice. The truth is, anger can be a good thing, an inner conflict that could stir interesting emotions which could then lead you to the desire to paint those emotions using colorful words, images, or whatever suits your fancy. The key here is to make sure that you can control your anger instead of the other way around. Let's face it. Anger or any other emotion never just magically evaporates. So while it's there, why not make friends with it while maintaining control. And how do you know you are in control? To me, the gauge is in seeing that you are making some sort of progress. Think of it as realizing the difference between a rant and a reflection.
