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

The other day, while channel surfing I found a show that was broadcasting its 4th season on TruTV, and I fell head-over-heels for it. What do you know about TV personality Kevin Pereira and comic Brooke Van Poppelen and the series HACK MY LIFE? Season 1 debuted in 2013 and the last season aired in 2018. Interestingly enough, IMDB hasn’t closed their production date brackets; the productive billing reads: ” 2015 – …” To me, that’s a sign of hope for future hack defibrillation.

No fan of reboots here, HACK MY LIFE is perfect still, in its show outline. There isn’t a show on the air with competitive content to date. For instance, when Murphy’s Law shows up at your house while you are changing clothes and your zipper gets stuck. You could tug on it and catch your skin in the process or you could:

Who knew? Knowledge remains ours for the taking
…and you thought wax paper was only for baking.

What about a hack using shaving cream, a dryer sheet, a half of a lemon, an avocado, a few drops of milk?

Who knew? Did you?
The show towers well beyond a thing or two.

I learned so much that I had to share it with you. No lie.
Episodes reviewed prior to sharing it with you, were only 5.

Each episode is informative; it’s the kind of series one should ‘take to heart.
There’s gamification and product relations that leave ya’ laughing and feeling smart.

Here’s one more glimpse of the show before I go:

Catch the show while it is nigh and learn a thing or 3,

enjoying a chill weekend with thee and watching the most TruTV.

Life would be a bore without it.
If creativity was a club, folk would crowd it

and try to keep others out.
Creativity is what a good life is all about…
and in the Social Media game, it could equate to “big clout.”

UGC (User Generated Content) is manifested composition
of creativity pointed at corporate positions.

A working system yields compensation and/or a credit mention,
says a robust fan of Thomas Edison’s inventions.

We all love to see the light.
Therefore, amongst the Mundanes —- ‘Creatives shines so bright.

People love to feel it.
So much so, many chart to steal it.

Stealing is nothing new. It’s been in fashion from the beginning of time.
The less-equipped struggle to create from whit, so they opt to ‘steal a shine.

Ever you experience such a thing?
A shameless being with no creative sheen…

Imagine not how they must feel.
Thank God that Creativity is real.

Creativity is not a club – it is a prompt; like a gene within your DNA.
It means different things across a myriad of scenes that will birth new convey.

While creativity is perceived to be fun it actually is a technology advocate for the advancement time…
In fact, creativity is where you want to be, per Albert Einstein.

Allow your creativity to shine and inspire many, (even those who seek to steal),
because without creativity life would be a monotonous & mundane hill.

And none of us want that.
So, the next time you’re in the company of a creator – acknowledge that,

network, and change the world.
Life is in the mood for new influencers, o’ young boy and girl.

What will you bring to the table and how will you fashion it?
Life isn’t easy, but it could be breezy if you’ve got a Creative fit.

Do you?
I’m Qui
Do You.
