We need our emotions. They keep us alive. They make the world worth living.  If we couldn't feel pain, joy, fear, anger, or love what would we do with ourselves? We need them. AND we need to keep them in perspective and in their proper place. And that place is NOT in the driver's seat!  In the concluding episode on this series, Amy talks about how we EVICT the emotions from the driver’s seat and take back the wheel. She offer 6 great ways to get emotions OUT of the driver’s seat and back where they belong.

Picking up the series on the 12 steps of recovery, Amy discusses Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. When we reach step 10 in our journey, we have done A LOT of work! So much work! And there can be a tendency to back down the intensity of the work that we have done. Step 10 is a call to action – listen to Amy describe some of the things we must Continue to do if we are going to continue down the road of recovery.
