Love this quote from Curt Thompson’s book entitled “The Anatomy of the Soul.”
“The origin of our word EMOTION is grounded in the idea of e-motion, or preparing for MOTION. That is why the phenomenon of EMOTION is deeply tied to ONGOING ACTION or MOVEMENT. We cannot separate what we FEEL from what we DO.”
I’ve always equated good decision making with emotion-free decision making. Maybe instead of turning down my emotion I should tune in to my emotion…pay attention to my emotion…value my emotion as the very thing that gets me moving upward and onward…or downward and backward:-)
Time to pay attention to where my emotions are taking me. If I’m moving, it’s because there’s an emotion in there somewhere propelling me.
Over and out.
