One thing my analyst emphasizes a lot is my becoming more aware of when I am angry - either at him or someone else who is important. It is quite stressful to experience such uncomfortable feelings more, but I have found it to be very well worth it in terms of general well-being. Fully experiencing the negative feelings seems to clear the way for stronger positive feelings later on. Not too easy, though!
It's nice to hear about your mother's intelligence and strength - that sounds like who she really is.
