Amazon packages


You arrive at your house, notice a new package on your doorstep, see that it's from Amazon, and then...

you never open it. 

Your curiosity would kill you trying this.

But it's what we do to our hearts, minds, and emotions every day when we encounter an emotion but never slow down enough to try to unpackage or understand it. 

Sadness.  Anger.  Anxiety.  Pain.  Shame... They're all "packages" waiting to be opened with wonder and curiosity.

And they're opened with one small, curious question:


Why... am I sad?
Why... am I upset?
Why... am I mad?

Why... do I feel the way I do?
