In her new book Emotional Obesity, Laura Coe argues that our culture teaches us from a young age to "get over" our feelings. The result is that we end up carrying their excess weight around with us throughout our lives.
Everything in life has two sides, it is better to look at the positives and to embrace the advantages. Regardless of events, we need to have the courage to accept, to connect, and to share. Touching reflects directly back to us like a mirror and this instant give-and-take translates into love.
Any good roadmap has structure and suggestions, but that doesn't mean you can't choose to detour. What's important is to accept each day for what it is and to be present in it. Choose to be the best you can be in the moment.
To be healthy, fit, and confident in our lives, we must accept and appreciate the weight of words. That's right, there are "heavy words," and there are "light words" -- words that can help you gain or lose emotional weight.
