We're all emotional creatures. We have urges and outbursts of reasons unbeknownst to us. Sometimes, we feel before we know. This effects so many things in our lives: relationships, jobs, our family and our health. In order to make these moments productive and aligned with our needs, we have to understand the process.

I'm beaming with excitement, naturally. It's a natural reaction to the some amazing things happening on my end.

I'm noticing a few clouds lifting in my life. Subjects that were hard to breach flow with safe accuracy. I'm becoming more comfortable with myself.
