“Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.”
Anne Sweeney


Recently, as a mother, I had to face a personal fork in the road that bore deep into my heart. As parents, we wish only for the best for our children and hope their choices in life will bring happiness and contentment to themselves and the rest of us as a family unit. As they grow into independent human beings, for most mums we wonder about our place in their future choices. This is especially true when you are extremely close to your children like I tend to be.


I went through an emotional avalanche as I felt my place as a mother slightly threatened, but thankfully during a quiet moment of reflection whilst witnessing the epitome of true devotion, I turned to my emotional wisdom to remove the unwarranted stories in my head that were clouding my better judgement.

The outcome through a readjustment of my thoughts and approach to the situation was more than favourable, to say the least, and has paved the way for a future I look forward to.


Defining Emotional Wisdom

So…What is emotional wisdom?

Emotional wisdom is the collective knowledge and experience that result from having lived a life of emotional diversity. You obtain emotional wisdom by learning from past mistakes and taking that which you’ve learned into the future with you. It is give-and-take – you receive the experiences and decide what serves you the best to remember and use in the future.

Our emotions are continually giving us messages about what feels good and what doesn’t, what feels right and what feels wrong, what is acceptable and what isn’t, and the ultimate direction we should be going. Our emotions tell us when things are great, or when they need to be improved.

In this article, we’ll examine four steps to help you achieve greater emotional wisdom.
