How does it make you feel? 1

I have a friend and her name is Anne she is an amazing friend, Mother, Grandmother and business owner and she is a very compassionate clinical psychologist.

I met her many years ago, but over the last couple of years I have gotten to know her really well. There is this one question she asks me all the time about the way I make decisions.

She says this.

Amanda, how does this make you feel?

You see I’ve always been ashamed of my emotions. Being told I am too much, too emotional or too loud. Too strong, too opinionated or too forthright.

And maybe there were sometimes when this was the case, but the funny thing is this, I am learning from my friend, that the more I ignore my internal temperature the louder I become.

The more I listen to the leader within, intuitively listening to my emotions and my body the more peaceful and quieter I become.

I wonder how curious you are about your emotions?

When we listen we discover.

This keeps us very real.
