What message is anger sending us? In “The Artist’s Way,” Julia Cameron writes “Sloth, Apathy, and despair are the enemy. Anger is not.”
Sloth is seductive, with its promise of nap times and of not making waves. Action requires risk taking and might lead to upsetting those who have an interest in maintaining the status quo. Forward motion ultimately is in our best interest, even if it’s scary taking those first steps. But I am more afraid of waking up from a nap and finding I have slept my life away.
