Emotional much?

Emotional Much?

Repressed, suppressed and oppressed – this is what happens to our emotions.  We control them, our teachers and parents teach us how to ‘manage’ them (if we’re lucky, perhaps), and our culture has all these ‘soft’ rules about which ones are ok to let out in public.

I bring this up because I have had, over the short few years I’ve been writing here, been focused on putting out ‘positive’ things.  I didn’t want this to be a place where I just whined about stuff I couldn’t change or got all victimized by stuff outside of my control.

But it has occurred to me that without the whole spectrum of emotional response being represented here, you would only get a small piece of the bigger pie, and Lord knows I’m all about sharing the pie.  I wouldn’t be writing here if this weren’t true.

Perhaps you recall the idea that what we put out there, whether it’s on Facebook or just how we live our lives, it’s our final cut.  There’s tons of tape left on the cutting room floor (ok, maybe film and cutting rooms don’t exist anymore, I don’t really know, but you get the idea).  And while it’s ok, to me anyways, to put my best foot forward, there’s no point in trying to hide the fact that I have an average foot, too, or even a failure of a foot.  I experience the entire range of emotions, and I’m pretty sure that everyone else does, too.

I really like the idea that when I let myself be crazy or angry or hyper or any of those types of things that generally aren’t supported in public expressions, I am giving space for others to do the same.  When I allow myself to mess up and forgive myself, that shows my kids, for instance, that it’s ok to mess up.  We just pick ourselves up and keep going.

So while I continue to free up my emotions, getting all that excess baggage out of the attic and basement and everywhere in between, I will be looking at some of it in depth because that’s what this process is for – to discover any hidden jewels hidden amongst the bags of done deals.  The way my life is going lately, I will be finding some really good ones in the next few days and weeks, because it seems that whenever I invite something into my life, it shows up!

In exquisite anticipation,
