Think of the small, everyday irritants: Someone cuts you off and grabs your parking space. Someone cuts in line in front of you after you’ve been waiting a half hour. Your waiter brings you clam chowder instead of tomato bisque. The list is endless. Is it worth getting angry? Is it worth ruining the next sixty minutes of your life fuming about the irritant? The only certain thing is you’ll never get the sixty minutes you wasted ruminating on the irritant. Roll with it. Let the irritant pass like a floating cloud. You’ll feel a lot better and so will those with you.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
