The Little Book of Big Feelings

An Illustrated Exploration of Life's Many Emotions

For so long, we have been conditioned to think that it is acceptable to respond “I’m fine,” when asked “How are you?” But in reality, our human emotions are much more complicated than that. Sometimes we are a little grouchy, or elated, or lonely, or livid. And you know, that’s okay!

In The Little Book of Big Feelings, Maureen “Marzi” Wilson takes you on a journey of self-acceptance and acknowledgment. After all, there’s no such thing as a bad emotion, only reactions to experiences that we can learn from moving forward. It’s perfectly fine to get mad, it’s okay to be happy, and it’s definitely alright to feel both at the same time. We are a complex set of feelings, and it’s time we start embracing each one!

Maureen “Marzi” Wilson had a quiet childhood by the Chesapeake Bay, and is enjoying an equally quiet adulthood by the Yellowstone Forest. Her hobbies include reading, swooning over typography, and cuddling her Yorkie, Kiko. That’s as much information as she’s willing to share with you, as she’s an introvert and doesn’t know you very well. Check out her website and find her on Instagram @IntrovertDoodles.
