Emotions and Evaluating
I have been doing some major "spring cleaning" in my life and I'm talking more than just clothes that I don't wear anymore. I have been in the process of letting go of old habits, mindsets and even evaluating my relationships to see if I have "outgrown" any of them...So much is going on in my life right now and I feel that if I can just free up some extra space, I can allow myself to make room for things that will begin to enrich my soul and my life undoubtedly. My emotions have not been so haywire because I am learning how to express myself in healthier ways...A book that I am just about finished reading titled: "Living Beyond Your Feelings" by Joyce Meyer has been a real anchor for me. I say that mostly because I really did have issues with how to express my emotions in a healthier way. Especially anger and sadness...which I have experienced in many ways recently. I am also learning how to forgive, not that I didn't know how to before, but I have begun to embrace it for what it is. Forgiveness is like strength to my soul and each time I forgive, I become stronger.
