God has given us emotions that serve as a "guidance" system. Consider your emotions like other types of "symptoms" - runny nose, cough, chest pain... these things help us see that something is going on that needs attention.

Same with emotions. When you're feeling depressed, worried, scared, bitter, lonely, etc., it's time to do something.

Don't spend all your time and effort creating a life that satisfies everyone else AROUND you. Create one that breeds satisfaction WITHIN you.

Amen to that! Emotions are definitely a useful tool, I use the frustrated and worried feelings to fuel me to look at how I can change my approach and get back on track to my goals and dreams. I agree that it is wise to do your best to not spend a lot of time in "negative" emotions and use it as a trigger/fuel to change something.

So true. Great thoughts and great to hear how others are using emotions as a tool instead of a hindrance. Thanks for sharing!
