“When you learn to surf the waves of your emotions, you breathe through the experience instead of getting pummeled by the tides.” – Jessica Leigh Lyons
We’re meant to experience emotion. It’s a deeply humane part of being human. So many of us try to stuff it down or numb out in order to escape the feelings we don’t like. In times of strife, it might feel like waves of emotion are knocking us down. Breathe. Do the work of learning about your internal tides. When you know yourself, when you watch your inner world with mindfulness and compassion, then you’re surfing… you move with intention instead of in an attempt to keep yourself from drowning.
Learn about your emotional waves.
