There was a time in my life where I felt so much that I chose to numb myself with…lets call it… “stuff”. Then I went a long time without feeling anything real at all. I barely recognized the pureness of love, joy, sadness, peace, compassion, any emotion actually, in myself or others. These days I embrace my feelings, all emotions. I recognize them, welcome them in and let them take me over, or pass, whichever it calls for. Having feelings is a blessing that we as humans take for granted. Today I am grateful for my feelings.
