Researchers asked participants to read short stories or watch movies and “color in the areas of their body where sensations became stronger (the red and yellow) or weaker (blue and black) when they felt a certain way”. The result is this map of our emotions.

What's interesting to me is that "happiness" lit up the entire body. Unlike love, it was a full body experience.

A few weeks ago I was walking down the street and my whole body tingled. Like my orgasm, it started in my feet and traveled up my body. It was sheer happiness.

We give meaning to our own lives and I'm grateful to have be at a place where my mind is clear and my heart is open. Happy to be me.
