"When we don't have the words to describe our feelings, we're
not just lacking descriptive flourish, we're lacking authorship of our lives."

Hello, beautiful people!
Wow!! Thank you for the connection and the inspiration following last week's newsletter. You all have some INCREDIBLE porches, and places you settle into, for moments of respite.
Let's hope our lovely porch-sitting weather continues!
No matter what, here's to our ongoing commitment . . . let's keep practicing the power of the pause.
We Are More Than 3 🙂 😡 😢
"My message for everyone is the same: that if we can learn to
identify, express, and harness our feelings, even the most challenging ones, we can use those emotions to help us create positive, satisfying lives."~ Dr. Marc Brackett

A few months back I wrote about a study (done over 7 years, with over 5,000 participants) revealing most people can only identify three emotions: happy, angry, and sad.
