I was listening to an interview, a while ago, where a famous actress said…“Its Ok, to feel the feels”. I ran the sentence, back through my mind, “It’s OK, to feel, the feels….it’s OK, to feel, the feels….it’s OK, to feel the feels”.
I often retrace, words, quotes, through my mind, to introduce it, as a mantra. Then for me, my monkey mind, plays a game where it….tries to hear, say it & move on, & my subconscious mind, says ‘ hold up, wait a minute…What did you just feel, when you said that? Just in these few seconds, the feeling can be whisked away, into reaction. And then stress, anxiety negativity begins.
But if you take, the feeling, be in the feeling…It will give you the opportunity to rest in the moment, be present with the feeling to act, rather than react.
It’s a new year, a new day…it’s OK to feel, the feels.
