Emotions come up, what do they mean? What are they telling you?
I’m feeling anxious before I go on stage — am I worried everyone is going to hate me or am I excited everyone is going to love me?
I’m home alone and feeling lonely — do I just suck because I can’t will myself into a great mood or is it simply a signal that is telling me to grab the phone and talk to another human being?
I’m angry somebody probably stole my phone out of my unlocked car — wait my phone is in my bag.
Today, when an emotion comes up, brainstorm some alternate meanings — even if they have 1% chance of being true.
