Think one word to describe your FEELINGS at the moment.

Hello you beautiful human. 
Think one word to describe your FEELINGS at the moment. 
Say the word out loud.
It makes it more real.
(or if someone is within earshot - write down - but
it needs to be concrete - not just a fleeting thought!!)

Often I ask a human 'what are you feeling right now?'
I usually get as an answer::
1 A description of what they are thinking - but communicated with feelings.
2 An opinion - answered with some feeling.
I don't usually get - a feeling, a word describing how they are feeling.

Working it out with a group ..........
My delight! with some coaching and encouragement -
I start to receive feeling words.
I have used activities and eventually I receive a feeling words from each one and I am absolutely delighted. 

This can be a major step - a great step into awareness and skill.
It can help equip us - and young humans for years ahead.
They can reflect on their feelings, articulate them and then decide how to communicate from a position of emotional intelligence rather than emotions being in control.

If we are in Leadership or a Parent -
we model behaviour and,
more importantly, 
modelling Emotional Intelligence.

The Blob Tree and the other 1500 tools like it,
is all about helping humans of all ages to communicate at this level. (  )

All this stuff is so vital in terms of an individual human being/becoming a 'human becoming'.

A Caterpillar looks nothing like a Butterfly  
but one develops from the other. 

"Grow and develop in my love"
I hear the whisper in my ear every day.

Which one single human, 
this is another question to you,
is on most your mind at the moment?
Acknowledge to yourself
whether the feelings connected with this person 
is it one veering towards::
1 concern/negative? - or 
2 delight/positive?
decide on three words which describe your emotions best.

"Courage is resistance to fear,
mastery of fear,
not absence of fear."
Mark Twain

Relate that to feelings and ..............I love it love it.

Feelings are good - even the bad ones
IF we can learn how to manage them.
