Questing Questions are a regular feature on my blog; basically, a journal question to get you further along in your life quest. If journaling isn’t your thing, feel free to take the question as your focus for a meditation, a prayer, or a piece of artwork.
When people you know casually ask how you’re doing, you probably just say “I’m fine, and you?” without giving it much thought. But how do you really feel?
This month, my theme is “feelings in art”, and I encourage you to really check in with yourself and ask how do you feel. Really.
You might have stress about something in particular, or it could be a more general sense of discomfort or anxiety, or a shadow of something in the past you’re still carrying. You might not want to look at it but, even if you can’t do anything about the situation today, it still helps to acknowledge and witness what you’re feeling.
Give yourself permission to feel whatever comes up. Just feel it, just experience the emotion and let it move through you. It won’t last forever. Let it pass and then do a self-care practice to recover and move back into your daily life.
How do you feel?
