Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. Left-Brain excerpts will be from her care-takers’ point of view or the point of view of the friends and family around her, while right-brain excerpts will describe how she sees the situation. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

How today’s story excerpt can help you:

Theme: As a society, we are so focused on our outward appearance, but we rarely take time to check in with our internal appearance. The importance of this is just as vital, if not more, to our well being.  You would never not brush your teeth on a daily basis, so why would you not address your emotional state on a daily basis? Unbrushed teeth leads to stinky, rotten teeth.  Unchecked emotions lead to sticky, rotten thoughts which manifest as negative behavior. If we become aware, however, then we can see how to keep creating positive feelings and learn how to handle the negative ones.

In today’s story excerpt Dr. Wong gives Michelle an emotional check report card to fill out daily. The goal is to first become aware of her emotions throughout the day.
