Emotions : Nonet

Our emotions, how  they  ebb and flow

Pent up inside, hidden below

Calm exteriors, all that  show.

Explosions  build  and grow

Vicious blasts  will blow

Why hide them so

They will grow

Ebb, flow

    Indeed, I love Ellie Goulding’s music. She touches my heart in so many different ways. I wish I could say my emotions are all over the place but in all honesty, I must say I’m stuck on depression at the moment. I know I can say this on your blog and I am safe. I’ll crawl out and see the beauty of the world but right now, I have to be where I am until I get a grip on the next phase. Thank you for being there.

    I find that I can direct or channel my emotions – at least many of them. For instance I can recall being stopped on the 401 – that is Canada’s busiest highway connecting Toronto and Montreal – and getting angry that my schedule was being destroyed and the log book issues this would cause and how it would affect my next few days of work by having to start later for log hours, etc. Then I realized that ahead there was a fatal accident and there were people dead and seriously hurt and loved ones would be bereaved and children had lost parents and parents had lost children – all on this sunny summer day. And suddenly I thanked God that I was safe and of reasonable health and I prayed for those who were in the accident. And I was peaceful and could wait indefinitely. It is possible to direct our emotions – some of the time, in fact I would dare to say most of the time. Many of our emotions are generated by our perspective on life – change the perspective and change the emotions. 😀

    Great post Willow.
