While some feelings are undesirable, the ability to feel is a gift regardless. We are better able to recognize the happy times from the bad, as well as comprehend how we are getting on in the world surrounding us. I am quite the passionate soul, so I spend a good deal of time feeling. In fact, I cannot imagine life any other way. I am setting a goal to work on not wasting my feelings on those who cannot or will not appreciate them in order to show gratitude for such an invaluable aspect of this existence.
