E is for Emotions

“Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”

Like the flower in the photo above

I’m feeling overly exposed

The light is shining brightly

and I squint

and flinch

at the emotions that refuse to stay inside

my head is pounding

my belly is constantly too full

better to face them or

either my head

or belly

will explode.

 

—————-

I am feeling…

I am reading Soul Stories by Gary Zukav,

and I’m working on feeling my feelings.

  1. I love the opening lines . . . often we do ‘eat’ our emotions as a way of shielding ourselves from feeling. I also like the way the photo of the flower mirrors the sense of being over-exposed. Sometimes we need to confront our inner selves, those dark thoughts, those moments of honesty. But, be kind to yourself. The journey is also one of love.
