Emotional Rollercoaster



Emotion is any conscious experience[1][2][3]characterized by intense mental activity and a certain degree of pleasure or displeasure.[4][5]Scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings and there is no consensus on a definition. Emotion is often intertwined with moodtemperamentpersonalitydisposition, and motivation.[6] In some theories, cognition is an important aspect of emotion. Those acting primarily on the emotions they are feeling may seem as if they are not thinking, but mental processes are still essential, particularly in the interpretation of events. For example, the realization of our believing that we are in a dangerous situation and the subsequent arousal of our body's nervous system (rapid heartbeat and breathing, sweating, muscle tension) is integral to the experience of our feeling afraid. Other theories, however, claim that emotion is separate from and can precede cognition.   Source: Wikipedia 

How cut and dry.  For something that torments is from our first breath to our last, you would think the definition would be far more complex.  In short, emotion is the label given to the body’s response to certain situations. 

We humans in our quest to be the most complicated beings within all of creation have muddled things up, yet again.

Not to over simplify matters, but a serious distinction MUST be made between Emotions and Feelings, and the association between the two.  The way I like to view it is like this:  my brain is an organic computer, my inner self/spirit is a programmer.  Feelings would be the the True experience, Emotions would be the program provided to my brain to simulate feeling in an attempt at true understanding.  The only problem with this scenario is that with the way our world is set up today, writtled with over saturation, sooo many more times than not, we are not only experiencing them both simultaneously, but reacting and responding to certain situations with both as well.

Let’s get one thing straight, right now.  In case you in the previous analogy, emotions are SIMULATIONS, not real.  “Wait, What??!”  You wonder why you want to confront a situation immediately?  So that you still harbor the emotion that was associated with it to give your words more impact.  As a matter of fact,  if we wait too long to express how we “feel”, most times we find those so called feelings fading, and not as impactful as we thought.  It’s because no real “feelings” were ever associated with the incident in the first place.  It was all emotion. 

 Happy/Sad/Angry etc are all states of mind, and can be changed and manipulated to suit the individual need.  Feelings are uncontrollable and nearly impossible to manipulate or change.  Learning to differentiate the two and applying this to everyday life, especially relationships, will have enormous impact on your interactions with others, and help to keep you focused on what is REALLY important to you.  Think about it, when talking to the person you love, what voice do you want them to hear, the one that is constant and unchanging, or the one that changes based on mood??!!👀. Speak first from a place of LOVE, the rest will fall into place just as it should.

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

You Only Owe YOURSELF

I had an epiphany the other day... What if we put all the energy we expel on others that is foolishly wasted BACK into ourselves, our life dreams, and into creating the world we CHOOSE to live in??!! Before we all become hopelessly selfish and self-involved, re-read, and take in the thought in its ENTIRETY!!!  I am talking SPECIFICALLY in instances where your positive energy, time, and effort are not being reciprocated. There are so many situations we find ourselves in to which we develop an animosity of sorts towards those we are actively trying to help when we don’t feel that same energy being returned to us in one form or another.  Yet, we are taking umbridge with the wrong individual.  The person we should be focusing those feelings is right there waiting on the other side of the mirror.  That is who entangled you and your resources to an individual making moves to which your higher self is not in agreement.  This is who we should look to for explanation and a game

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
