Evolving Emotions: Anticipation

Looking ahead to the summer and Fall 2023 semester is intimidating but exciting! Don’t forget to live in the moment, learn all you can, and try to have fun in the process!

The best is yet to come. -Frank Sinatra
Pleasure is found first in anticipation, later in memory. -Gustave Flaubert
Vorfreude (n.) the joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures. -Matilda Tornquist

Evolving Emotions: Trust

Trust is pivotally important in relationships and in life. Cherish and protect it in yourself, and be cautious of others.

Trust your gut! If something feels not-quite-right, it probably isn’t.
This is good advice. However, I’ve also heard the opposite. People show you who they are. Sometimes we choose to stay blind to what’s right in front of us.















Trust the process! We are always growing and evolving. As long as you keep going, you’ll get there. 🙂

Evolving Emotions: Love

So much of the art put out into the world is about art. But what can it tell us?

I found this quote to be absolutely beautiful. It’s a tragedy to be singed and scarred. It’s another to wonder if things could’ve been different if given another chance.
PLEASE DON’T SETTLE! That’s all I’m going to say on that one. :^)



















You make up one half of a relationship and should therefore be equally valued within it. Your opinions, ideas, knowledge, and consent matter. If they are reluctant to hear it or act with intentional disregard, that isn’t love.

Evolving Emotions: Anger

Thoughts on Anger

“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” -Buddha











“Anger is sadness that had nowhere to go for a very long time.” -TheMindsJournal










“Don’t be angry with people who don’t have the capacity to change.” -IHearts143Quotes

Evolving Emotions: Sadness

Things get heavy and sometimes feel inescapable, like you’re drowning in a sea of thoughts or worries. Know that the sky will clear but for now, let the clouds rain.










Life is difficult most of the time. We’re all on our respective journeys, battling it out against ourselves and our circumstances. Be kind to yourself in your current state of mind.










Pain doesn’t abide by schedules or deadlines. If things need processing, they need processing. There is nothing wrong with taking the time you need to heal, whether physically or emotionally. It will all be better in its own time and on your terms.

Evolving Emotions: Surprise

Whether you regard it as a blessing or a curse, life is unpredictable! Anything can happen so you might as well enjoy the ride!
I’m certain you’ve heard some variation of this: The one for you will arrive when you least expect it. If it is said enough, perhaps there is truth to it?

Life will always be filled to the brim with unexpected possibilities. Fighting the current won’t do you good, so go with the flow!
