ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within – Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist  – Fine is not an emotion


Hello there, and welcome back!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and looked after yourself, being and staying happy (of course). Thank you for all the private messages and requests on topics to write on, to support you in your personal transformation journey. I want to start by tackling how to deal with your emotions and stress responses, which links perfectly with the previous blogs about happiness. And understanding your emotions is sometimes much simpler than it sounds …




First one: feeling fine. “Fine” is not an emotion per see. It is a generalised word used to ask generic “polite” questions when we meet people or have conversations. But it does not describe what is actually going on in our minds or heart. It is a socially acceptable “mask” to move the conversation along.

Remember: “fine” is not an emotion. What do you actually feel right now? Pick the word that actually describes your state right now.

Is that joyous? Or peaceful? Perhaps excited? You get my gist here. You need to be a bit more specific than just “fine”. Your feelings are telling what you have been thinking for a long time, they are sensory information. Understand the actual thinking behind them and connect. And then you can express yourself fully.

Enough for today, I think. I am feeling satisfied. What about you?

See you tomorrow x
