What I’ve discovered is that I’ve spent periods in my life ‘flat lining’. Not literally, (I didn’t die) but I’ve just motored on and not actually been aware of how I’ve felt about things. I was introduced to the notion that life is like a heart monitor, with the peaks and troughs representing emotions: anger, excitement, love, sadness, exhilaration etc. I have, however, spend periods of time not stretching out to the peaks and troughs and kind of getting by somewhere in the middle.
I am alive when I connect fully to all my emotions and really experience anger, excitement, love, sadness. All emotions are beautiful, and I’m on a quest to live my life in the peaks and troughs.
