All tag results for emotions
Awww! So cute!
Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett surprised a young fan with a ball on Thursday while warming up for his game against the Kansas City Royals.
The boy's face is PRICELESS when Josh kindly walks over and personally hands his biggest (and maybe youngest) fan a baseball.
The boy begins to literally jump for joy, but then becomes so overwhelmed by emotions he breaks down in tears!
Wow! We can only imagine how awesome Josh Beckett felt after that.
Anna Wintour showed signs of having working tear ducts last week.
Vogue's editor-in-chief couldn't help but get a little farklempt while giving a speech at creative director Grace Coddington's 70th birthday party.
A fashionable source at the party said it was a "really very touching" moment.
Aww. We're sure it was.

Wrestlers have emotions too and The Edge proved it on Monday Night Raw this week when he announced in front of thousands of fans he had no choice, but to retire due to a neck injury.
Watch his emotional farewell to the World Wrestling Entertainment world, which made him a star after winning a record seven World Heavyweight Championships.
Tears crept through that tough exterior as the fans chanted, "Thank you, Edge! Thank you, Edge!"
We're sure wrestling fans will be sad to see him go, but happy to know he will be living a long and happy life after catching the possibly crippling injury before it was too late.
"If you asked me 'Would I do it again?'", he questioned the crowd. "In a heartbeat."
People say wrestling is fake, but The Edge and countless other wrestlers are proof that the pain is real and they put their bodies on the line for our entertainment.
Thank you, Edge! Good luck in whatever endeavors the future holds for you!
Anyone who has ever tried to diet knows it is a little stressful, but new studies show it may be more anger inducing than we thought!
In a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, 4 experiments show "that exerting self-control makes people more likely to behave aggressively toward others and people on diets are known to be irritable and quick to anger."
In the first study, people who chose an apple instead of a chocolate bar were more likely to choose movies with anger and revenge themes than milder movies.
In the second, participants who exerted financial restraint by choosing a gift certificate for groceries over one for a spa service showed more interest in looking at angry faces rather than at fearful ones.
In a third, dieters had more favourable opinions toward a public policy message that used an anger-inducing appeal – if funds are not increased for police training, more criminals will escape prison – than they did toward a sad message.
Lastly, participants who chose a healthy snack over a tastier less-healthy one were more irritated by a marketer's message that came across as dictatorial.
The study authors said of their experiment:
"We set out to examine whether exerting self-control can indeed lead to a wide range of angry behaviours and preferences subsequently, even in situations where such behaviours are quite subtle."
In effect, the authors wrote:
"Public policy-makers need to be more aware of the potential negative emotions resulting from encouraging the public to exert more self control in daily choices."
We never would have thought, but can totally understand where these emotions come from.
Dieting is hard! We just have to remember we are doing it for a positive reason and try to monitor our negative emotions.

We all have bad days. But scientists have found that bad feelings are exacerbated when you read cheery facebook status updates from your friends and assume their life is better than your own.
It turns out that happens a lot more than you might think.
The first set of experiments on this subject revealed that people consistently underestimate how often other people have negative emotions, while overestimating how often they have positive ones. In other words, everyone assumes that everyone else is happier than they actually are.
The next study found that people who always think other people are happier than they are were less satisfied with life and felt they had more problems than the normal person.
So what’s the solution to this problem? Well, for one, everyone needs to understand that just because your friends may seem happy on the outside, they’re likely to be just as lonley and insecure as you are.
The next step? If you’re feeling down about your life, DON’T READ FACEBOOK STATUSES! Go workout! It will make you feel better! We promise!!
