I tend to get all up inside my feels, and the thing that bothers me the most is being aware that it is happening and not really taking control of them.

This is a very important lesson. And, one that a good deal of us need to take a second to absorb, especially during these 2020 times.
This has been a crazy year for everyone, and our emotions have bee stretched beyond their comfort levels. The result of what happens when they snap? We snap. Most often, if not always, we tend to snap at the wrong person.
This is because we’re letting our emotions take control instead of making the conscious decision to decide our reaction. We choose how we react to our emotions. Choose wrong, and your going to likely find yourself performing damage control.
You need to set your emotional intention at the beginning of each day. Decide beforehand that whatever emotions you encounter throughout the day, you will accept them and move on to feelings of joy and having fun.
