Inside Out December 9, 2015Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Meditation, Mindfulness, People.
Inside Out provides an Insider’s perspective on the competing emotions in our brain ~ Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger.
Immersed in thoughts sent by Joy, Riley exudes joy. When Sadness takes the helm, Riley sinks.
If Fear grabs the controls, caution prevails. With Anger calling the shots, Riley snaps at her parents.
Thoughts season our experiences and expectations.
As a quick experiment, follow one of these thoughts and observe how your reaction shifts:
A. “I can’t believe she said that! Who does she think she is? I am so tired of listening to her go on and on and on about . . .”
B. “Another terrorist attack? Why would someone do that? What is wrong with them?”
C. “My To Do List is a mile long. I’ll never get it all done. Something’s gotta give . . . ”
D. “This is going to be fantastic fun! It’s going to be a blast to catch up with everyone after all these years. I can’t wait to see what . . .”
Aah . . . that’s better!
When we put peace of mind ahead of all else, we discover the power that lies within. ~ Joseph V. Bailey
