The biological and physiological underpinnings of emotions were discussed by Aristotle around 350 BC, in De Amina (On The Soul), per Discrete Emotion Theory which states: there are core emotions that are biologically determined emotional responses whose expression and recognition is fundamentally the same for all individuals regardless of ethnic or cultural differences.

Ever heard of Emo Cali?

Hint: It did not originate on the West Coast. 🙂

EMO Cali is short for EMOTIONAL CALIBRATION and is exactly what I want to talk about this morning. Why? Because feelings are personal and revealing. What are your thoughts/philosophy on sitting in un-comfortability to figure out why you feel and react the way that you do?

What is GUILT? A feeling that refers to the belief that you have done something wrong or that you will do something wrong. We feel this way when we are out of alignment with our true values. Emotions arise as “a necessary check“, (like the check engine light in your car), so that you check-in with your true values on the topic via introspection and retrospection.

Once you recognize that the uncomfortable feeling that you are experiencing is Guilt what do you do then? Understand that emotions arise to protect us from being vulnerably hurt, then work on emotion designation; exercise mindfulness into what you mean.

Emotions are easy to calibrate when you do so within your true value system. Then and only then will it stick and render you more confident in your responses. Remember, emotional responses arise to protect us when we don’t understand or know what to say in any given moment.

God never intended for us to feel overly vulnerable, so He gave us emotions as a sort of first line of defense. Use them properly and folks will think you are a communication genius.


In 350 BC Aristotle was on a roll
per Discrete Emotion Theory aka On The Soul.

What Aristotle found and comprehended in his life’s scene
are 12 Fundamental Emotional Responses that reside in every human being.

That’s right. Emotionally, we are all human, thus, we are alike
and like complexions, our emotions gradient between dark and light.

Learn a little. Learn a lot.
Mean who you are and not ever who you’re not.

Emotional Calibration is a mindful lesson
that can help you fell less guilt or needs for confessions.

Question your innate responses as often as you feel necessary.
Refer to the 12 Core Emotions because feeling natural shouldn’t be scary.

Use the zest that is associated with JOY to lessen the pain of Sadness.
Use Laughter, a Joy extension, to calibrate anger or madness.

When GUILT shows up at the party, ask yourself an honest WHY.
Then focus on why your response was so protective, (given that you didn’t even try).

If you find that you could have handled things differently, the good news is: you still can.
Reach out to that person who was misunderstood and clear things up on how you stand.

Calibrate the mood of the relationship sincerely and in the process teach a friend
that even though we banter to and fro, via self improvement we can all win.

No one is perfect, but if we are mindful it may look similar to

A child asked his father, “How were people born?” So his father said, “Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on.” The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, “We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now.” The child ran back to his father and said, “You lied to me!” His father replied, “No, your mom was talking about her side of the family.” 😀

the-ropers-tv-programs-photo-u1Wife: “I look fat. Can you give me a compliment?”
Husband: “You have perfect eyesight.”

On the bus…
A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says, “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, “The driver just insulted me!” The man says, “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

The Laugh Factory Comedy Network is my goto when I want to laugh in short.
The last 3 jokes that you’ve enjoyed were borrowed from their stash of sorts.

Laughing well on this Wednesday morning, no deep thoughts just yawning while making a simple relation:

Good morning, Goodness, we do indeed meet, again.
The start to any good pairing is best at its historical begin.”

And that is just what our Exposé periodical highlights:
We’ve got The Ministry of Silly Walks for the Sciatic and Samsung Flips to Revive!

Yes, yes. The old Mighty Python moves strike back
but this time as a Fitness routine and alleviation for the back.

The WASHINGTON POST and CNN have both published planes
on Mr. Teabags’ gait for fitness sake and now Sciatic pains.

Actually, the periodicals focus on: ‘a gait vs jogging‘ talk,
though I found “the pigeon pose goes mobile” in the Mighty Python walk.

In the jog vs the walk study, the British Medical Journal did find,
that walking silly generates quite the encouraging caloric grind.

Imagine how much energy it would really take
to walk like Mr. Teabag’s on an average day.

And if you have suffered an injury to, say the Piriformis
a crazy walk is your goto route to avoid pain & get on with it.

Life can comes to a stand-still when the sciatica pinch is “on.”
I should know, t’was no fan of the show, yet I’ve walked like a Mighty Python.

Doth you know the standing pigeon pose?
I can do it almost anywhere, during my to and fro.

It looks crazy-funny when you’re walking, but it works, yo.
Don’t knock it til you try it in the gym or on the go.

Yes, people will be looking. but it only takes about 3-minutes.
It is absolutely worth it to avoid the sciatica squeeze’s beginnin.’

No frowns, keep grinning and bending it out.
And if you need to call a friend, use a phone; no need to shout.


If you prefer to wear low rise jeans, this next product may be a hit,
If your cell phone has been way too long, any chance you want to flip?

I’m no gymnasts, so let’s just say that I am asking for a friend,
plus the New York Post published this piece about Samsung reviving “the bends.”

Did you miss it?
If so, here’s your chance to re-kiss it,

The flip phone is back! So… do you, “vintaged Boo.”
And to my father-in-law who just upgraded from his OG flip phone a few months ago, “Oops!”

Timing is everything. I enjoy relics and a good revival, but I’m not quite ready to flip whilst I talk,
I’m Qui
more to remain agile, so lookout for me on my fitness spree that resembles the Mighty Python walk.

Get a load of those gaits!
