“Feelings, Nothing More than Feelings”

This famous ‘70s song, written by Brazilian singer Morris Albert, has been covered by legendary vocalists including Ella Fitzgerald, Julio Iglesias, and Johnny Mathis and is instantly recognizable around the world.

As you may have noticed, feelings come and go. Like customers in a busy café. Or the ebb and flow of waves. Yet it’s very easy to hang onto the negative feelings, the ones that tell you that you’re not good enough, not worthy, or will never be as happy as you once were because of past mistakes and regrets.

Allow your feelings to come and go instead of holding onto them. They don’t define you. You have control.
