Louiseville is a smallish town on Lake St-Pierre, about half an hour west of Trois-Rivières, along highway 40. I was there today, installing software at the SADC
I talked with a good friend last night about emotions and dealing with them in sane and non-dysfunctional ways, and had some homework to do today. Be aware of and welcome a positive emotion, and explore it. So I started the day and wondered what the emotion would be. It ended up being pride. No, not Deadly Sin #1 — more like the honest, simple pride in being who you are, knowing and acknowledging your strengths, qualities and capacities. The kind of pride that one could have and still be humble. It’s the “good” pride that people keep talking about. Sometimes it takes someone outside yourself to give you an honest appraisal of just what you’re worth and it opens up doors inside your spirit. or maybe it flings open doors that were already open just a crack. the usual cryptic language… lol. I feel like I’m more certain now about what I’m good for (and good at) in this world. I may not be the best disco dancer, but hey, at least I’m good at what I do and people see it.
I processed a couple of other emotions today too, just to try it out. It was an interesting experience and helped keep me feeling honest and in touch with myself. I can’t thank God enough for the gift of being suddenly so free from doubt and worry, at least just for this one day.
By the way, this is not an April fool’s joke. April fish.
