Chapter 5, Page 20, Book 18

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

live life with feeling

When a man is able to connect with his feelings, he able to care more.

Warren Farrell

Our lives are filled with many feelings like sadness and anger, but they also stop us from feeling happiness and joy.  We have a wide range of emotions and feelings that help us to grow as people.  They are often messengers which single something important that we need to pay attention to.

Sadness  is as much a part of life as happiness is.   We learn about what’s import to us through our feelings.  In many ways they are the essence of life. We feel hurt because we love so hurt is a sign that you’ve let love in.  

The best way to deal with our feelings is to simply accept them for what they are.  Our thoughts and feelings are all connected.

You only get one life, so you might as feel all the feelings.

Greta Gerwig

I know I am basically a happy person, but I have to be very careful because at times I start allowing situations to push that happiness aside. We always need reminders, so to you, THANKS!

So true with the last quote about happiness being an inside job. We can't control sometimes the things that happen around us, but we can control how we react to them. It is something definitely we need to keep check of, especially if we are prone to times of sadness and melancholy.

Yes, it's key to acknowledge ALL of our feelings ... v. repressing something that's bound to rear an ugly head later. At the same time, we can't allow ourselves to wallow there. Acknowledge, then after a bit MOVE ON towards the sunshine!
