Day 1626: Emotions

I am having some emotions as I discover that I, a licensed psychotherapist, have not yet written a blog titled “Emotions” during all these years of blogging non-judgmentally.

What emotions do you think those would be?  Anger?  Sadness? Fear?  Happiness?  Surprise?  Is surprise an emotion?


Surprise! We focused on emotions during a therapy group yesterday.


Do you have any emotions when you see all the topics we could have focused on instead?  (I have some emotion about the lack of focus in that photograph.) (Is disappointment an emotion?  Is embarrassment an emotion?)

Do you have any emotions about all the questions I’m asking?  Any emotions about my other photos from yesterday?

This photo of a tissue box in my office …


reminds me that I try to let people know that expressions of sadness and other feelings are all welcomed.

I have emotions when I notice mistakes …


… and I also have emotions when I listen to music.

No matter what emotions you’re feeling now, I hope you know they’re all welcomed here. And if you leave a comment about emotions, my emotion will be happiness.

Emotional thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course!! (Is gratitude an emotion? Is enthusiasm? What would you include on a list of emotions?)
