Emotions.. I don’t know, somehow half of my life I considered them as my enemy. Highly sensitive, my emotions were all over the place, didn’t understand how I would ever be able to tame them.
I wanted to tame them, because emotions felt like a wild beast, not listening to my plans, not sticking around for the end results of the road I was taking.
Emotions were trouble, big trouble and I was so mad each time they had to be a party pooper!
But were they really? They turned out to be my best inner guidance tool ever!
I turned my life around, about 10 years ago. Saying goodbye to expectations, following my North Star and don’t give a crap about what other’s think of it. I had to experiment a lot to get where I am right now, with lots of up and downs, with lots of goals crashing, with lots of ‘I don’t know where I am heading… ‘ .

You see, we all have a vision of ourselves. A bucket list, life goals, wish lists.. We have an image of ourself, sometimes a vision we don’t share with others. Maybe because you know they won’t like it, they will be afraid losing you. You consent with the silent agreement you and your surroundings made. The responsibility to keep on the path you were heading makes you go on, and on, and on…
The only manual you have for life
But here’s the thing. We are emotional beings. We exist out of our emotions, our emotions aren’t something extra, emotions are the blue print of the human body.
