Life is made of moments and for human beings every moment has fleeting glimpses of varied EMOTIONS which is nothing but Each moment of transitional inner omnipresent natural sensation. From being gregarious to being weepy or fearful we experience stress and thrill in varied measure each moment of our life. A simple phone call can change our emotions around and surprises can turn to shock in a jiffy. Sports, especially close contests in which you are an interested party, offers the perfect setting for an array of emotions that you experience.

Very broadly, the most common emotions that each individual continually experiences include the following, Love, Joy, Surprise, Anger, Sadness and Fear. The challenge for human beings is to be able to control their emotions lest the emotions overwhelm and lead to undesirable consequences. Control of emotions does not necessarily mean not expressing the emotion but implies that we should be able to quickly become aware of the intensity of the emotion and keep that in check from consuming us. Infatuation for example could be the emotion of love gone awry. Revenge on the other hand is a mix of anger and hurt creating a potent mix to trick the mind into being subverted by the emotion. Then there are fears masquerading in various guises; nothing beats superstitions for sheer variety of fears.

Every emotion has a role to play in shaping our personality. Anger for example is an emotion that spurns us to action. The anti incumbency factor that votes out an existing government is an example of collective anger being constructively channelized for positive results. Fear is an emotion that prevents us from being foolhardy and taking stupid risks. Sadness especially when we experience failures is an emotion that alerts us to the complexities of life and the challenges we are likely to confront despite the best of preparations. Happiness acts as a great motivator to pursue success, become daring and aim higher; for as they say greater the obstacle greater the glory. Love is an all pervading emotion. It is an emotion that can engulf all other emotions; a soldier sacrifices his/ her life  for love of the country while a spurned lover can turn into a revengeful person for he / she cannot overcome the overwhelming power of the emotion of love in their being.

None can brush aside emotions though many would pretend to be indifferent to it. Emotions are part of the core of our life and being. What we need to be aware of is the numerous emotions that keep tugging at our hearts and minds constantly for they consist of Each moment of transitional inner omnipresent natural sensation.
