You are in control

Your mental and physical health come first. Everything else is secondary.

Zat Rana

Hello there friends.

It’s been a minute since I last updated my blog.

Perhaps you’ve been wondering if something is amiss?

Rest assured everything is just the way it’s supposed to be. I can’t complain about anything. My recent period of inactivity was just down to me taking a few days off to refocus my energies.

But I’m back now and we can resume our adventures through my imagination together. I’m glad you’ve been checking in even though I haven’t been doing so. You deserve an entry in my Gratitude Journal for you love and support.

Today’s poem is one I don’t want to foreshadow with a preview. I’d much rather you read it and give me your views about it in the comment section below.

I know that sometimes your emotions will get the better of you.

That anger may run away with you and win the race of emotional stability
And that sadness will surely lull you into feeling blue.

I know that jealousy can certainly cloud your vision of reality
And fear will definitely paralyze your thoughts, so you can’t think clear.

I know lust may lure you into the bedroom of doom and gloom
And that although bliss may make you feel as though nothing is amiss
Your anxiety will eventually come along to dismiss your bliss.

When this happens, do not pull your hair in despair
Instead know that you have the intellect to dare
To control your emotions so that they never
Ever get the better of you no matter what.

  1. It’s a similar story for most people. Scientists say it’s bacause our emotional brain evolved before our intellectual brain.

    It’s interesting to note there’s danger in only being a creature of intellect who is governed by nothing but reason.
    Such a person may loose touch with their feelings and life will seem to lose its spark.
    Then one-day, after not feeling many years, countless emotions will flood in and overwhelm them with their intensity.

    However, we all know the
    dangers associated with being slaves to our emotions. The path we have to take is one of Balance. Like tip-toeing on a tight rope we must keep from falling slaves to our emotions but also we should guard against letting our intellect trip us off the roller-coaster ride of emotions.
