My dear friend was visiting a friend, she saw a quote on the vanity mirror, and posted the quote. I was reading the quote, and thought about emotions. The holiday season triggers all kinds of emotions. The image shows branches intertwined, and the heart nested above and protected.
Sometimes we are caught-up in the commotion, and the commotion can branch in many directions. We also get emotional if the right words are not said, or expressed, i.e., joy, and love. If the negativity seeps in, it tears you, and everything seems bleak.
Like the tree of emotions, sometimes we have to climb-up, and out of the depths, and protect our own hearts. Give yourself those emotional words; enjoy yourself and love yourself, you count. Think kindness, and tolerance for your own soul, as you branch through life protecting your heart. Like the holiday shoppers stressing with their emotions, learn to be tolerant of them too.
