Emotional Triggers

Every Holiday, emotional flashes can appear out of thin air, taking your breath away, causing tears to run down your face, leaving you with the thought: “Where did that come from”? What just happened. It is important to recognize what just happened, where did that emotional expression come from? Here is an example: you are going to bake a cake for the holidays and as you beat the ingredients the smell of the batter brings back thoughts of when your mother taught you to bake that recipe for the first time. BOOM you are right back missing her as if her death was yesterday.
