Yesterday, in a therapy group, one of the members expressed a wish to anticipate feelings, in order to prepare for them.
I suggested, in that group, that it might be helpful to be more in the moment, rather than focusing on the future and what might be.
As I might have anticipated, I had mixed feelings about challenging other people’s feelings about what might help them.
Personally, I’ve been anticipating my own future feelings when I attend the Open Audition for “The Voice” on February 21, in Philadelphia. I’ve been anticipating that I’ll feel
- and more …
… no matter what the outcome.
Wow! Despite my suggestions to other people, I’m certainly anticipating feelings, aren’t I?
Last night, I had a dream filled with anticipated feelings about my upcoming “Voice” try-out, where I kept getting further and further away from the audition room, not knowing how to get back.
I’m feeling happy, now, that I always find my way back here, every day.
I also didn’t anticipate — before I started feeling and writing today’s “Anticipated Feelings” post — that all my photos from yesterday would be about feelings.
I’m not going to anticipate how you might feel about all this. Might you anticipate how I’d feel about a comment from you?
Heart-felt thanks to all those who helped me write this post and to you — of course! — for all your feelings, today.
