M was going to be for Music because I love it so much, but I am keeping with a theme (although that was not the plan originally) and if I get on the topic of music, I will surpass my limit of words I bestowed upon myself.
Mixed emotions are pretty much self-explanatory. It is like an emotional oxy moron to put it in simplistic terms.
I had mixed emotions when I decided it was time for my daughter to come back home.
On one hand, I was excited that she was coming home after being estranged for five years.
On the other hand, I was nervous and fearful because I had a lot of guilt and I felt that might impede my progress in good parenting.

In my WIP, my Protag has mixed emotions about how to deal with information she comes to learn about her client. Of course, I am helping her sort that out in an unconventional manner.
Discussion: When was the last time you had mixed emotions about something? Which emotion did you wind up siding with?
